Early Career Mathematicians Group Election

In April I wrote that the Early Career Mathematicians (ECM) Group Committee sought nominations for vacancies. The vacancies for Conference Leader-Designate & Engagement Leader received more than one nomination each so there is an election.

Early Career Mathematicians who are members of the IMA (within 15 years of graduating from a university mathematics degree or who do not have a degree and are within the first 15 years of their membership) should have received a voting form by email. If you think you fit this definition but did not receive a voting form, please get in touch.

There are five strong candidates and the choice was not easy but I have just sent in my completed form. Have you sent yours? The deadline is Saturday 30th June 2012.
