2018 ISST BOARD
OCTOBER 15 - 30
Duties of the Vice President of the ISST Board
Important issues to consider:
Since the location of the conference will not automatically be situated in the home country of the VP, it is therefore essential that the local organizing committee is capable of preparing the ground work for the conference. The VP needs to be in regular contact with both the local committee and the EB to make sure that the organisation is handled successfully, in a timely way and along the lines of the needs and wishes of the EB’s organizing committee. Where needed, the VP intervenes directly, to insure that any problematic issues are resolved.
Beyond the Conference: The VP participates in the monthly board meetings to help make decisions about the various issues related to the ISST.Final Note: Candidates for this position should be prepared to invest the time and energy required to field a successful conference, and be willing to have chief responsibility for this task. The ISST board offers a supportive group of colleagues with whom to collaborate. However, the responsibility for the conference primary rests with the VP. In their statements of candidacy, candidates should provide evidence of their qualifications for this position. Experience in having organized large-scale meetings, such as scientific meetings or conferences; excellent organizational skills; communication skills; and collegiality; are very important in evaluating candidates’ suitability for the position. The successful candidate should not be evaluated solely on the basis of having a good reputation as a scientist or clinician, but on the ability and commitment to carry out the tasks involved.
