FINAL REMINDER: ICRP Nomination Deadline One Week Away


As previously released on December 8th, 2016, ICRP is now seeking nominations for Committee membership for the next term: July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2021. Nominations will be retained for consideration for membership in ICRP Task Groups as the need arises.

Nominations must be submitted by email to no later than February 28, 2017. A nomination may be submitted by any person. It must be a pdf file of no more than 2 pages in length, in English (the working language of ICRP), and must include the following information:

a) The name, country of residence, affiliation (normally the employer), and contact information, including e-mail address, of the nominee;

b) An indication of the Committee(s) for which the nominee is being nominated;

c) A short CV of the nominee including at least a brief employment history, list of relevant major professional accomplishments, publications, and other information describing how they meet the relevant qualifications for the Committee;

d) The names and contact information, including e-mail addresses, of two nominators (any person other than the nominee may be a nominator – nominators may be contacted in confidence by ICRP for further information); and,

e) A declaration that the nominee is aware of the nomination.

Receipt of nominations will be acknowledged by return e-mail (to the address from which the nomination was received). Nominations should be sent well in advance of the strict deadline of February 28, 2017 in case time is needed to resolve any difficulties, since nominations not meeting the criteria outlined above will not be considered. Similarly, a nomination will not be considered if nominators cannot be contacted. Note that current ICRP Committee members are asked to follow the same procedure should they wish to continue to serve on a Committee.

The ICRP Main Commission will evaluate the nominations, and select individuals for Committee membership for the 2017 – 2021 term through an election process. Invitations will be sent to those selected during the second quarter of 2017. The first meetings of the Committees will be in Paris October 9-15, 2017.

An example for nomination submissions can be found at the end of the document here, along with all pertinent nomination information.
