New Steering Committee in place
Added on 2015-08-25 13:09:44 by Vandepitte, Leen
The WoRMS Steering Committee welcomes Nicolas Bailly and Nicole Boury-Esnault as new SC members.
Gary Poore has been re-elected and will serve another three years on the SC. In addition, Tammy Horton has been elected as an official member of the SC, where she was before an ex-officio member, representing the European Register of Marine Species.
Three people are leaving the Steering Committee: Geoff Read, Bert Hoeksema and Nicole de Voogd. We would like to thank them all for their many outstanding contributions to WoRMS while serving on the SC.
The recent SC meeting in Crete (June 2015) also took the decision to discontinue the practice of having ex-officio positions to represent particular regional registers. So, we would also like to thank the ex-officio members of SC, Mary Kennedy (Canadian Register of Marine Species) and Claude de Broyer (Register of Antarctic Marine Species) for their many outstanding contributions to WoRMS while serving on the SC.
All members of the Steering Committee are listed on the WoRMS “about” page.
