CALL FOR NOMINATIONS – for the CML Horizons Steering Committee

At CML Horizons 2022, the community elected its eight global “CML Horizons Steering Committee”, consisting of CML patient advocates from North America, Middle East and Africa, Western Europe, Latin America, Asia & Pacific and Central and Eastern Europe & West Asia regions.

Our Steering Committee is made up of expert CML Patient Advocates and is intended to serve as a leading team member for the CML community by providing support and help to implement CML Horizons annual meetings, as well as other projects, led by the CML Advocates Network.

The current term CML Steering Committee from Asia & Pacific and Latin America is coming to an end at “CML Horizons 2023”, and hence we would like to ask the community to nominate candidates for the upcoming elections. If you are from these regions, this is your opportunity to become an active and professional CML Patient Advocate and empower yourself as well as your region. If you feel you can contribute, please submit your nomination by sending us the nomination form (details of how to submit are in the form) that was in your invitation to register or visit our Horizons 2023 Conference page on our website.

The CML Steering Committee consists of one elected representative from each of the six major regions:

  1. Asia & Pacific
  2. North America
  3. Latin America
  4. Middle East & Africa
  5. Western Europe
  6. Central and Eastern Europe & West Asia

plus, the three CML Advocates Network founders as permanent committee members.

Deadline for nominations: 30th September 2023

To nominate a candidate for the election of the “CML Steering Committee 2023-2026”, we would like to ask your patient organisation to submit the nomination form by 30th September 2023.

The nomination needs to state your motivation and contribution to the committee on behalf of your region, your history and vision as CML advocate, your English language skills, and whether you are willing to commit significant time for teleconferences, meetings and emails to bring the community and conference to the next level.
