Elect your representative in the ESR
The individual members can now elect their representatives in the governing Committee of the European Society of Rheology. You are a member if you attended the latest AERC or if you paid the membership fee. There are also representatives of the national and regional societies in the ESR Committee who are elected by these societies, see the structure on the ESR web page.
The representatives should speak for you and make sure the Committee considers all areas of rheology and all geographical areas (for ESR: Europe and Africa). So, take this opportunity to make your voice heard and elect the representatives who will represent you.
Log in to the ESR member area and click “Election Representative of the Individual Members”. The poll is open until July 25.
