The Management Committee of the IWA/IAHR Joint Committee on Urban Drainage (JCUD) will have one vacancy later this year and is looking for a possible replacement as a part of continuous revitalization of the Committee.
Job description: all members operate in their own way and contribute accordingly. Typical contributions include proposing to organize workshops/conferences and training courses (usually in collaboration with our working groups), organizing or contributing to publications (monographs, or journal review papers), contributing news from their country or region to the Committee’s annual newsletter, participating in email discussions, attending JC meetings held annually in conjunction with drainage conferences, and promoting JC activities and visibility in general.
Qualifications: we are looking for colleagues actively involved in any aspect and sector of urban drainage. However, perhaps the most important qualification is having some time to devote to the committee activities and personal initiative in proposing and implementing new activities. One reason why our Committee has been successful in its more than 35 years of operation is our ability to attract highly motivated members to serve on the Committee. The elected candidates must be (or become, within one month of being elected) members of one of the parental organizations (IAHR or IWA), and our statutes allow only one member per country; if your country is already represented on the committee, you may have to wait till there is a vacancy, or even better, simply join in the meantime one of our working groups and start contributing to our efforts that way. The information on Joint Committee and the current membership can be found on our website.
Application procedure: you can either nominate yourself for JCUD membership, or you can nominate another person (ideally after establishing their willingness to serve, otherwise this will have to be done by JCUD), and submit electronically the following two documents to the current JC Chairman, Dr David McCarthy (email@example.com), copied to JC secretary Manfred Kleidorfer (Manfred.Kleidorfer@uibk.ac.at):
A brief CV
A statement of activities you would like to contribute to the JC program. Neither document must exceed one page, using a 10-point font or larger.
Deadline: 31st August 2022: The applications received will be distributed to the JCUD members for assessment and voting; the results will be announced sometimes after the JC meeting.
