All applications received will be reviewed by the ORCID Nominations Committee (NomCom), chaired by Karin Wulf. Full details of NomCom and the process are available at https://orcid.org/content/nominating-committee-charter .
We will draw up a slate based on member recommendations, taking into account balance by sector, region, skills, and non-profit status requirements established in the ORCID bylaws.
Board Directors serve for a period of three years, starting with our February Board meeting. Directors are expected to attend each of our three annual Board meetings in-person, and play an active role in ORCID activities during the course of their term.
In terms of the Board meetings, applicants should be aware that they:
• usually alternate between North America and Europe, with other locations a possibility per Board decision;
• typically last 1.5 days and tend to be scheduled back-to-back with ORCID-supporting engagements (e.g. workshop or outreach meeting) for which Board members are invited but not required to participate;
• travel and accommodation to participate in these meetings is self-funded (with the exception of the Researcher role on the Board where travel costs are met.)
For more about the roles and responsibilities of ORCID Board Directors, please see our Elections webpage http://orcid.org/content/Board-elections.
