[IIPPE Elections 2017] Call for Nominations
Dear IIPPE member,
This is election year for IIPPE. We had our last elections in 2014 and, according to our constitution, the elections for IIPPE officers (Executive Committee-EC and Council) are held every three years (see IIPPE Constitution for more details). The elections will take place electronically, as happened last time.
All Executive Committee and Council positions are open to full IIPPE members. Please consider standing for either an EC position (Chairperson, Vice Chair, Treasurer and General Secretary) or a Council position.
The due date for nominations is 27 September 2017 (24:00)
Please send your nomination to the IIPPE Officers Elections Committee (email@example.com), specifying:
- the position for which you wish to run (Chairperson, Vice Chair, Treasurer, General Secretary or Ordinary Council member).
- an Election statement (of no more than 1 page) describing why you wish to run, what has been your relationship with IIPPE, to what IIPPE activities you have contributed so far and wish to contribute in the future, etc.
- your CV.
We look forward to receiving your nominations.
Only full membership allows voting rights in Members’ decisions and this requires payment of the membership fee. Should you want to become a full member please pay the membership fee (for year 2017) at the IIPPE web site. Note that those who have registered for the Berlin conference have full membership as they were required to pay the membership fee.
The elections will be organised electronically (see Article 8.2 of IIPPE Constitution) using Helios Voting, the reliable online voting system that was successfully used in the last elections. The advantage of this ‘end-to-end auditable voting system‘ is that your vote is private, verifiable and impossible to manipulate. The final tally is released to all eligible voters at the same time.
Detailed instructions regarding the ballot will be circulated after the Berlin Conference.
The ballot will open on Monday 2 October and will close on Monday 16 October 2017 (24:00). Results will be announced by Thursday 19 October 2017.
If you have any questions about the elections please write to the IIPPE Officers Elections Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org)
