Call for UNOLS Nominations

UNOLS Council – Two Positions

The University-National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS) is an organization of academic oceanographic institutions working in cooperation with agencies of the U.S. Federal Government to ensure broad access to modern, well-operated, state-of-the-art research vessels, aircraft, submersibles, and facilities required to support a healthy and vigorous research and education program in the ocean sciences. UNOLS is currently engaged in a variety of important Fleet initiatives; such as, academic research fleet renewal, greening the fleet, and assessing future facility demands that will be placed upon the fleet with the implementation of ocean observatories and observing systems. Individuals who wish to contribute to these and other UNOLS efforts are needed to fill two UNOLS Council seats. The UNOLS Council members represent and act on behalf of the UNOLS membership as the operating and governing body of UNOLS.

A Nominating Committee that includes John Morrison (Chair), Nancy Rabalais, and Deborah Steinberg has been formed to prepare a slate of candidates. Nominations are being sought from UNOLS institutions to fill two Council positions opening in 2011. Requirements for the positions are as follows:

• One At-Large Position - affiliation with any UNOLS institution
• One Operator Position - affiliation with a UNOLS facility operator institution.
