If so, you can apply to become a board member of the WAEH.

This year two board members from the current board will step down:

  • David Probert, Moorfields Eye Hospital, UK
  • Dato Kulasegaran, Tun Hussein On National Eye Hospital, Malaysia

Please note that board members who step down can also go for re-election in the same year they step down.

Would you like to become a board member of the WAEH?
In the beginning of April you will receive an email with a request to fill in your application. You can do this online via our website.
Please note that your application will be treated strictly confidential and will be just reviewed by the support team of the WAEH.
Deadline to send in your application: Friday May 4 – 2018.

After the application process has ended, all full members of the WAEH will receive a link to the voting form to select two new board members from the members that applied for board membership.

The outcomes will be presented during the member meeting – at the annual meeting of the WAEH in Ann Arbor, US.
