Voting Open!

Voting is now open for the election of members to the ACSA Management Committee for 2019-2020. We received ten nominations in total for six open positions (General Member Jennifer Loder still has one year remaining in her term, and she will continue on the committee through 2019).

For the positions of Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary, one nomination was received per position. The candidates who nominated for these positions will therefore be elected unopposed.

For the two open positions of General Member, we received six nominations. The six Candidates are listed below – you can find their profiles and answers to four questions about the field of citizen science, together with details relevant skills and experience, here. Please use this information to help you decide which two candidates to vote for.
