Past-president, International Section
Copenhagen Business School
Right after the Annual Meeting, the International Section launched the election of a new President-elect to serve for the next year before taking over as Section President in 2019. The election saw a competition between three highly-relevant candidates each with excellent experience in research management and a desire to serve the society as an elected officer.
Talking on the position is a long-term commitment entailing the following terms:
- President-elect: One-year (2018)
- President: Two-year Term (2018-2019 and 2019-2020)
- Past-president: One-year Term (2020-2021)
The winner of the election was Lorna Colquhoun, who is Director of Enterprise at the University of Bristol in England. I thank the candidates for running and the interest in volunteering. The next election for an incoming president-elect will be in 2019, but there are many more ways to volunteer see here for more details.
