A distinct lack of volunteers was apparent. I was nominated by another member and, emboldened by their vote of confidence, I agreed I would stand for president.
No other nominations were made, and I quickly became the president of the LIMS Fellows Society.
I’m not a career politician. I may have enjoyed watching House of Cards and loved a good political power move on Survivor, but my election to president of the LIMS Fellows was not in my career plan.
I don’t like to turn down opportunities, however, so this blog post is about my year as president of the LIMS Fellows Society.
