DHNB BOARD: CALL FOR NOMINATIONS

The Nomination Committee of DHNB opens the call for nominations for three positions for the next election period which starts on 15 February 2023. Board members are elected for a 3-year period (20232026). 

The term of three of the current Board members, Olga Holownia (Iceland), Lars Kjær (Denmark) and Costanza Navarretta (Denmark) runs out. Olga Holownia is not a candidate for re-election. The full list of Board members can be found on the website: http://dig-hum-nord.eu/about-dhn/board-members.

More information about the DHNB Board can be found in the statutes.

Every member of the DHNB association* has the right to nominate a candidate for a position on the Board. Every member of the association may be nominated for election to the Board provided that

  • the nominee confirms their willingness to serve in writing and is supported by two members of the association other than the nominee;
  • the nomination reaches the nomination committee by midnight (CET time zone) on February 15, 2023.

The Nomination Committee will consider all valid nominations, keeping in mind the purpose of the association and the need for Officers, as well as 1) overall geographical representation of members, 2) continuity versus turnover, and 3) diversity (DHNB Statutes §7.2). Given the current composition of the Board, we would encourage proposals from the countries that are not represented on the Board, i.e. Denmark, Iceland and Sweden. To ensure the effective functioning of the Board, we particularly encourage applications from candidates who are committed to taking an active role on the Board. 

Nominations should be sent to the Nomination Committee, Sanita Reinsone sanita.reinsone[at]lulfmi.lv and Ditte Larsen dila[at]kb.dk by February 15, 2023.

Questions about the election process may be addressed to the nomination committee. Questions about the responsibilities of the Board may be addressed to the chair of the Board, Annika Rockenberger annika.rockenberger[at]ub.uio.no.

* Only members in good standing (this means that the fee for 2022 is paid) are eligible and have voting rights. To renew your membership, please follow the instructions on the DHNB website http://dig-hum-nord.eu/about-dhn/join-dhn.
