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.
