New CEIDP Board Member Applications for 2025-2027:

Yearly, the CEIDP renews one third of its Board Members. The election of new Board members, for a 3-years term, is organized by vote during the Board meeting in the week of the conference. Board members (both elected and life members) participate together in the key decisions of the CEIDP life (selection of next venues, budget approval, …).

 If you wish to serve and join the CEIDP’s Board, as a new elected member, from 2025 onwards and for a 3-years term, please download the CV template HERE and send by email your short CV (1 page max with picture) to the Nominating Committee Chair, Drs. Virginie Griseri, before October 01st, 2024.

All the CVs received from new candidates by then will be presented during the next CEIDP Board meeting followed by the vote by the current Board members. It is recommended to actively participate to CEIDP in-person during the term, as the Board meeting is physically organized during the conference’s week.
