People

The International Society for Infectious Diseases brings together a network of over 90,000 individuals from around the world who share a collective belief that infectious diseases cross all national and regional boundaries and that long-term effective solutions require international scientific exchange and cooperation.

ISID and its members are dedicated to developing partnerships and programs that facilitate the development of innovative solutions to infectious disease challenges around the globe, enabled by an effective and inclusive governance model.

  • Governance

    ISID is governed by a council, elected by its membership. The Council is organized by geographical region to ensure representation from all the areas of the world. The membership, upon the recommendation of the Council, also approves the composition of the Executive Committee and its officers who are charged with overall responsibility of the Society’s activities and the appointment of an executive director who has day-to-day responsibility for all society business.

    Executive Director

    Appointed by the Executive Committee and reponsible for the day-to-day running of the Society.

    Executive Committee

    Responsible for appointing the Executive Director and overseeing all of ISID’s activities, the Executive Committee is composed of:

    • Five officers of the Society: President, President-Elect, Past-President, Treasurer and General Secretary, each serving a four year term.
    • Four members-at-large, each serving a six year term.
    • One representative of the region hosting the next International Congress on Infectious Diseases, serving a two year term.

    Executive Committee members are elected by Council Members at biennial General Meetings of the Society held in conjunction with the Society’s International Congress on Infectious Diseases.

    Any Council member interested in serving on ISID’s Executive Committee may submit their name, CV and Statement of Interest to the Nominations Committee for consideration. The Nominations Committee draws up a short list of candidates based on nominees’ professional excellence; past and proposed future contributions to the work of the society; and ensuring balanced geographical representation.

    The Council of the International Society of Infectious Diseases

    Responsible for governing ISID, the Council consists of not more than sixty members each serving a six year term with one-third of Council membership being replaced every two years. Membership is distributed by WHO region to ensure that all regions of the world are represented in the Society’s governing structure.

    Council members are elected by Society members at biennial General Meetings of the Society held in conjunction with the Society’s International Congress on Infectious Diseases.

    Any member in good standing may submit his or her name to the Nominations Committee for consideration for Council membership.

    If you are interested, please send your CV and a short (not more than 350 words) statement of interest to info@isid.org

    The Nominations Committee proposes candidates to fill vacancies on the Council based on a nominee’s professional excellence; past and proposed future contributions to the work of the society; and ensuring balanced geographical representation.

    The Council serves as both the legislative body of the Society and consulting body for the Executive Committee. Individual members are responsible for:

    • Promoting membership of the Society.
    • Supporting the implementation of the Society’s goals through the dissemination of information about the Society and distributing Society materials at local and regional meetings.
    • Leading local and regional infectious diseases societies, and working closely and collaboratively with these groups to promote the Society and its programs.
    • Maintaining the Society’s worldwide representation.
    • Representing the Society at scientific meetings.
    • Reviewing applications for ISID grant and fellowship programs and/or abstracts submitted for presentation at ISID meetings (two-six hours per annum).
    • Participating in the Society’s various sub-committees including Research, Education and Publications; External Affairs, ProMED, Finance, Nominations, or Programs. Sub-committee meetings are usually held “virtually” by Skype/teleconference three times a year. The role of the subcommittees is evolving, and members may be invited to take on additional activities, as determined by the subcommittee chair.
    • Establishing and maintaining contact with possible sources of funding for the work of the Society and its meetings such as foundations, government agencies, and the pharmaceutical industry.

    Note: Any fundraising activity on behalf of the Society must be coordinated through the ISID office in Brookline, MA, USA.

    Council members are also encouraged to:

    • Attend the International Congress on Infectious Diseases and to submit abstracts to the Congress. The Society will waive the registration fee of Council members but cannot guarantee any financial help to assist with participation.
    • Contribute and solicit articles and other information (including scheduled events) suitable for publication in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases.

    Note: Council members receive no compensation for their efforts on behalf of the Society.
