Design Research Society Council Elections 2016
The DRS is holding its annual elections for council members and council officers.
Council members – The council is the main vehicle for running and developing the DRS. Council members are experts in their area of research and they also undertake a variety of work for the DRS, for example in forming groups to steer the development of new activities. Each year half of the members of the DRS council are elected to serve for two years. This year we must elect 6 members.
Council officers – These people take the main responsibility for running the DRS and in addition to the Secretary and the Treasurer, are responsible for membership, communications, events and internationalisation. These roles are elected annually.
To stand for election you must be a paying member of DRS and you must be nominated by another member. You will also need to provide a statement about yourself (max 500 words) which demonstrates your experience and what you hope to achieve for DRS as a council member.
