Letter from the ECD Nominating Committee about Incoming Secretary Office   

Dear Friends,

 

We are honored to serve on the Engineering Ceramics Division Nominating Committee for 2014-15. One of the most important responsibilities of the ECD Nominating Committee is to bring forward the incoming division secretary candidate for 2015-16. This nomination will be presented for approval at the ECD Annual Business meeting during MS&T 2015 meeting in Columbus, OH (October 4-8, 2015) and will go on the ACerS annual election ballot in spring 2016.

 

As you all are aware, ECD is a very vibrant and energetic division in the society with a lot of enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers. This division organizes one of the most widely recognized international meetings in the world in the area of advanced structural and functional ceramics, composites, and other emerging ceramic materials and technologies. This division also organizes and sponsors major symposia and plays a key role in the Annual Meeting of the Society. We are very fortunate to have many highly motivated and committed volunteers from all over the world because they are the key elements of the bright future of this division (and Society).

 

We would like to request your support and help in identifying highly qualified and motivated candidates for the incoming secretary position. Please send your nominations with a short description of the candidate’s qualifications to any one of us by August 15th, 2015.
