Election Procedures (Revised August 27, 2023)

The following regulations govern the procedures for the election of Executive- & General Board members. The By-Laws of ICRS provide the general framework within which the Society must elect committee members and officers. The regulations in this document describe the detailed process by which elections will take place.

Role of Nomination Committee

New members of the Executive Board (2nd Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary) are elected by ratification of the General Membership based on a recommended slate of candidates selected by the Ad-hoc Nomination Committee.

Structure of Nomination Committee

The committee is composed of one non-voting chair and five Members:

Formation of the Nomination Committee

The election result will be interpreted as follows:

  1. The top two candidates from an historically underrepresented group with highest number of votes will be selected initially.
  2. If there are less than two candidate from underrepresented groups, the slots will be filled with general candidates instead.
  3. The remaining two slots will be filled from the top voted remaining candidates.

Election of the Executive Committee Members

The General Membership is invited at the General Assembly to accept the suggestions or reject. If the proposed candidates are accepted by a simple majority vote, then those candidates are declared elected. If proposed candidates are rejected by a simple majority vote by the general membership, then the short listed candidates list is taken to the General Membership for an electronic open vote.
