What is the advisory board?
To initiate the community, an advisory board will be established consisting of researchers at different career stages (early stage, young investigator, senior principal investigators), as well as professionals from industry and journal editors. The constituted advisory board will define the direction and agenda of the FRET community. The first task of the advisory board will be to establish the organizational structures of the community, and discuss and ratify the bylaws.
What does it mean to be on the advisory board?
As a member of the advisory board, you will be responsible for planning, initiating, and coordinating the activities of the FRET community, such as disseminating efforts, scientific challenges, workshops and conferences. Being on the advisory board will grant you an opportunity to push forward your vision and ideas for the community.
For how long will the advisory be elected?
It is proposed that the first term of the advisory board will be for at least 1 year (subject to change by the first elected board). Elected members of the advisory board may resign at any time, in which case the follow-up candidate of the last elections will be called to the board.
