BIDS Steering Group elections in the Fall

  • Switch chair?

  • Discuss process

Suggestion from previous meeting:

  • Have candidates make statement about what they add to steering group, including diversity (broadly construed)

  • PR from steering group to clarify candidate filtering process by existing steering group (KW)

KW will be rotated out - will be invited back to give advice on specific topics (e.g. community development)

From the governing structure:

Initially, Steering Group members will be elected for staggered terms of 2/3/4 years, to allow continuity and overlap across years. This will ensure institutional knowledge is preserved within the BIDS Steering Group. In the initial BIDS Steering Group, there will be at least one non-MRI modality represented. ->

One person drops after 1 year, 2 more after 2 and 2 more after 4.
