Council and Committee on Nominations Elections

 

Elections for IUSSP Officers and Council members for 2022-2025 will take place from 15 September to 27 October 2021. IUSSP Members are also invited to elect members for the 2025 Committee on Nominations. 

 

IUSSP election procedures

 

The electoral list will comprise all current full members (including members in grace) on 15 August 2021. The electoral list will be made publicly available, and members will have until 1 September to contest the list. The final list will be published on 3 September 2021.

 

Please make sure to renew your membership to be able to vote. 

 

  • Elections will be held via the Internet, using a secure external online voting company. Eligible members will receive an email to access the ballot and vote.
 
  • The electoral procedure will be controlled by an Election Committee composed of three IUSSP members: Rajib Acharya, Wanda Cabella and Gilles Pison. 
 
  • The rules governing IUSSP elections can be found in the IUSSP Constitution (article 10 and by-law 2).

 

Election of members of the 2022-2025 Council


The Committee on Nominations nominated 2 candidates for each position on Council, including the two officer positions: the Vice President and the Secretary General and Treasurer. In the IUSSP Constitution, the Vice President succeeds to the President, who is therefore not elected directly. The ballot, however, will include a vote to elect the outgoing IUSSP President as Honorary President. 

 

Members had been invited to nominate additional candidates for Council but no additional candidates were proposed.

Election of members of the 2025 Committee on Nominations

 

Since the new Constitution approved in 2017, the Committee on Nominations is now elected by IUSSP members (except for its chair, who is the outgoing President). A list of candidates has been selected by the Council for the members to choose from. Members will select one candidate per region. The candidates receiving the highest number of votes in each region shall be declared elected.

Note that since the Council decided to propose only two candidates for each region, the requirement previously included in the by-laws that candidates be from at least 10 different nationalities (which implied there always needed to be 1 candidate from the US and 1 from Canada) was removed through a unanimous vote of Council members. The Council will naturally aim to propose candidates that reflect the diversity of IUSSP members, whether geographic, disciplinary, or other.
