I have read the description for the position in which I am expressing interest. I understand the responsibilities of serving on the SSTESOL Executive Board. I have also notified my immediate supervisor of my intention to seek this position and of the expected commitments. I confirm that the information in this Expression of Interest form is complete, accurate, and up to date. I understand that not everyone who completes an Expression of Interest form will be nominated, in part because the ballot must reflect the diversity of the SSTESOL membership, and in part because of the number of highly qualified people who are in competition for the number of open positions on the ballot. I also understand that if I am not selected by the Nominating Committee for the ballot this year, I am free to submit an Expression of Interest in the future so that I can be considered for other elections.
