TRS ELECTIONS for the 2018-2020 Executive Council have been rebooted:
vote in the new ballot until December 14, 2017
The survey tool used for the election of the Tree-Ring Society's Executive Council was compromised. Only TRS members can vote in the election, and to date, we've had nearly twice as many votes as we have members. This is either a technical issue with the site we used, or the link to vote was shared with non-members who swayed the vote. We hope to have resolved this issue by choosing a new survey tool that will strictly limit votes to one per person. Only active TRS members that Lori Wilson has loaded into the survey will be able to cast a vote. (An 'active' member is one that paid their dues in 2017.)
Active members should have already received a new link to the ballot to their registered email address. The poll will be open now through December 14th, 2017; polling is strictly confidential but will be monitored. Go to the Elections page to view the nominees, the categories for which they are running, and their nomination statements.
If you are not currently a member of TRS, you are warmly invited to join and can vote for Council members before the December 14th deadline. Simply go to the member page and join. Note that membership entitles you to reduced registration at the World Dendro in Bhutan this coming June and the AmeriDendro meetings, and to access to our journal Tree-Ring Research.
