The PLG are looking for early-career candidates to lead the future photonics community, emphasising our inclusive, supportive environment. Can you help us make sure the photonics ecosystem is one that we’re proud of for us and the people who come after us?
We’re looking to elect five roles to the committee of the new Future Photonics Leaders Group :
- Two Co-chairs one from industry/RTO and one academia Co-Chair, to interface with the wider Photonics Leadership group and external organisations, as well as voicing the viewpoints of the Future Photonics Leaders group.
- One Secretariat (communications) who will write blog posts, emails and manage the social media for the Future Photonics Leaders group.
- One Secretariat (Events and Meetings) who will organise meetings, setting agendas and inviting speakers.
- One Funding Officer who will seek new funding sources, and pitch the case to funders to support the current and future activities of the Photonics Leadership Group.
These roles are all voluntary and come with support from the wider Photonics Leadership Group. More information on the future Leaders Group and the committee roles is available in the future leaders pages of this blog.
Please nominate yourself, friend or colleague (with their permission) for these roles with a short statement of the added value you will bring to the committee. You don’t need to have vast buckets experience, just a willingness to learn and get involved. Nominations close at 17:00GMT on the 8th of December.
Voting will be on the 19th of December at 2pm during a live meeting* open anyone who considers themselves part of the future photonics leaders community. Join the future photonic leaders contact list to be sent more information.
Get involved, and good luck!
