Dear all
If you are looking to get involved in biodiversity informatics at a global level and want to make a difference then why not join the enthusiastic team running Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG, www.tdwg.org<http://www.tdwg.org>) ?
It concerns the further enhancement and development of the data standards and tools used among others by GBIF and the framework of the data publishing in the BID projects. Nominations are notably open this year for the African Representation of TDWG. Elections will happen in Fall and terms start as of January 2019 for two years.

Positions are open for Deputy Chair, Secretary, Chair of the Functional Subcommittee for Communications & Outreach, Chair of the Functional Subcommittee for Funding & Partnerships, Africa Representative, Asian Representative and North American Representative.

All terms are for two years, except for the Deputy Chair, who is expected to serve as Deputy Chair for two years and as Chair for a further two years.
Details of the positions and the process are available on the TDWG website at https://www.tdwg.org/news/2018/call-for-nominations/<https://tdwg.us9.list-manage.com/track/click?u=50f3cc44307841383062ca0d6&id=6b4a695e6b&e=e69faeeea4>.
