Expressions of Interest for TGDOC Chair-Elect

Expressions of Interest for TGDOC Chair-Elect

Our TREAT-NMD Global Registries are governed by the TREAT-NMD Global Database Oversight Committee (TGDOC). The current TGDOC Chairs are Nathalie Goemans (Chair), Craig Campbell (Chair Elect), and Hugh Dawkins (Outgoing Chair). During the upcoming TGDOC Webinar on 26th November, Nathalie will step down after 2 years of excellent leadership, and move to the position of Outgoing Chair. Craig will become the new Chair, and we will say a fond farewell to Hugh.

Therefore, we must appoint a new Chair Elect, and we would like to invite Expressions of Interest from any TREAT-NMD members who have an interest in taking on the role. In consultation with the TREAT-NMD Executive Committee, the current TGDOC Chairs will then select the successful candidate from the Expressions of Interest.

The role entails:
• Commitment for two years as Chair Elect, followed by two years as Chair, and then two years as Outgoing Chair.
• Participation in fortnightly calls between the TGDOC Chairs and the Secretariat.
• Input into the governance of the TGDOC and associated projects as required.
• Attendance at relevant meetings and conferences where possible.
• Please note that if you don’t currently have a CDA in place with Newcastle University, you must commit to establishing one before taking up this role.

Members can nominate other members for the role however those nominated must be members of TREAT-NMD or be prepared to apply for membership. Members must seek the permission of the individual before making the nomination.
