Call for nominating candidates for the ESRS Executive Committee 2015-2017

At the General Assembly in the Aberdeen Congress the ESRS will elect a new Executive Committee for the Society. The Executive Committee is composed by the following officers; President, Vice President and four Ordinary Members.

The constitution permits the society to have an election if there is pre-nominated candidates (i.e. the General Assembly cannot suggest new names at the GA meeting itself). According to the Constitution, those Ordinary Members who have served for only 2 years are eligible to stand for re-election but they must be proposed, seconded and elected in the same way as the other posts. Only members of the ESRS can stand for office and only members can nominate or second candidates. Elections will be held by ballot at the GA in Aberdeen.

Please ​send names of nominees as indicated on the template below to Kristina Svels (ksvels@abo.fi) by the ​26th​​ of June​​. Nominees must have agreed to stand.

Following the nominations, names will appear on the Society website and nominees will be invited to write a short statement of their reasons for standing and their plans for the Society. They will also be asked to present themselves at the GA in Aberdeen (​19​th​ of August)​.
