IZFS will be holding Board of Director (BOD) elections in May 2020! We will be electing Officers (President-Elect, Treasurer) and Regional Directors (US/Canada, Asia/Pacific, and Europe/Mediterranean). Regional representation on the IZFS Board is determined by the number of PIs per region who are registered in ZFIN, so we strongly encourage all PIs to register their labs in ZFIN before March 1. You can find details about the BOD positions in the IZFS Bylaws.
