Advisory Council Nomination Extension
According to the IHS Bylaws, the Advisory Council (AC) is “responsible for carrying out the aims and purposes of the Society and for determining Society policy.” Nine of the fifteen AC members are elected by the IHS membership; the AC elects the others. As you nominate and elect new AC members, remember that these individuals should represent a broad spectrum of international horn-related activities.
Nominations for election to the Advisory Council three year term of office, beginning after the 2024 Symposium and ending after the 2027 Symposium, must be received by the Executive Director before the new extended deadline on December 15, 2023. Nominees must be members of the IHS and willing to accept the responsibilities of the position. Nominations must include the nominee’s name, address, phone number, email address, written consent, and a bio of no more than 150 words. Please note that nominees cannot nominate themselves.
Terms of the following AC members expire in July 2024: Peter Luff, Margaret Tung, and Lucca Zambonini are completing their first term and are eligible for nomination. Michelle Stebleton is completing her second consecutive term and is not eligible for nomination at this time. Send nominations to Allison DeMeulle, IHS Interim Executive Director, at email@example.com.
