Nomination of candidates by petition (open until June 20th)

If the Nominating Committee has not included your suggestion in its slate or if you have another suitable candidate not hitherto considered, all members have the option to file a nomination by petition by June 20th. The new election procedure gives any group of members in the Association, which feels that its interests are not properly taken into account by the NC 2017 slate, the chance to submit nominations by petition for any vacant Council Member positions. A valid petition requires signatures of 15 members from at least five countries or from a group of countries representing 10% of the IAHR membership. This assures that there is support for a candidate which goes beyond a personal or national interest. All valid nominations by petition will be included in the ballot.
Nominations by Petition must be submitted to the Secretariat (elsa.incio@iahr.org) within two months after publication of the NC slate of candidates with a statement from the candidate, that she or he is willing to accept the nomination, a resumé including professional career, involvement in IAHR, and a statement on the planned contribution as Council member.
