By working with members of the ISPP, organizing events at the annual meeting, supporting ECC activities throughout the year (e.g., Travel Award, newsletter), and facilitating communication across the discipline through social media, the ECC is an integral part of the ISPP community. This is an excellent opportunity to meet and work with other members of ISPP, provide input into the ECC, and enhance your curriculum vitae with international committee experience.
Each member serves a two-year term (except chair-elect, which is a three-year commitment). Each year we aim to fill one of the two positions for each subcommittee so that first-year ECC members are paired with second-year ECC members with experience in that position (although this isn't always possible). You may apply for more than one position (see below). All ECC members are encouraged - but not required - to attend ISPP’s annual meeting.
Applications are due by May 10, 2018.
To apply, please submit this online application form and your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. Only complete applications will be considered.
A selection committee comprised of ECC members and Governing Council members will review the applications. The 2018-2019 ECC will be announced by the end of May with the new term beginning at the end of the annual meeting in July.
