Election of Incoming President, Secretary and Ordinary Executive Board members

Candidates proposed for the posts of Incoming President, Secretary or Ordinary Executive Board member must be supported by 10 full individual current members of the EAA. The Incoming President is elected one year before the end of term of office of the current President, and will serve as Incoming President for one year (2017-2018), becoming President automatically for 2018-2021. If the current President stands for reelection for his second term and wins over other candidates for Incoming President, then the current President continues directly into his second term and there is no Incoming President. Complete nominations received will be forwarded for consideration to the Nomination Committee which will then produce the lists of candidates to be included in the ballot. The ballot papers will be sent to all full members before 1 August 2017. You may then vote for your preferred candidates by post, fax, e-mail or on-line; alternatively, you may vote using your ballot papers at the conference in Maastricht.

 

Election of Nomination Committee member

Candidates running for a position on the Nomination Committee must be supported by 5 full individual current members of the EAA. Nominations received will obviously not be forwarded to the current Nomination Committee but will be included in the ballot. The ballot papers will be circulated to all full members before 1 August 2017. The new Nomination Committee member will then be elected through the normal election process as above, i.e. in a vote by post, fax, e-mail or on-line or at the conference in Maastricht.

 

Appointment of Editorial Board members

A system of appointment rather than election was approved at the Annual Business Meeting in Riva del Garda in 2009. Therefore, members cannot put themselves forward for election to the Editorial Board, but can express their interest to work on this board to the EAA Secretariat, which will then communicate it to the Executive Board which is responsible for the appointment of new Editorial Board members.

 

If you are interested in serving the EAA in any of the available positions or if you have any suggestions for candidates, please send the completed candidate form to the EAA Secretariat before 4 April 2017.
