2016-2018 Election: Cast Your Vote – Secretary General
All ICRS members are invited to cast their votes to elect ICRS Secretary General for the 2016-2018 term of office.
The purpose of this post is to explain the process by which members of the new Executive Committee will be elected and to open the electronic ballot.
Under our Bylaws, the current President, Norimasa Nakamura, will remain on the Executive Board for one Term of Office as immediate Past President; the current First Vice President, Ken Zaslav, is the President-elect and will automatically become the new President; the current Second Vice President, Alberto Gobbi, will automatically assume the position of First Vice President. Therefore, the Second Vice President position is open for election. Only the current Secretary General and Treasurer are eligible to stand for election to the position of Second Vice President, however if neither decides to stand for election for the position of Second Vice President, general board members can stand for election for this position.
The current Secretary General (Elizaveta Kon) and Treasurer (Tom Minas) must stand for election if they wish to serve a second Term in their current position or seek election to one of the other vacant roles. Moreover, current General Board members as well as those who served on the General Board in last two Terms of Office are eligible to stand election for an Executive Officer position; however, they must have obtained ICRS Fellow Membership status.
Therefore, we recently invited all eligible candidates to consider nominating themselves for the open Executive Board positions, namely Treasurer and Secretary General.
The results of the nomination process were as follows
- There was only one candidate for the position of Second Vice President. Under the Bylaws, where there is only one nomination that person is elected for the position by acclamation, without a ballot being held. Tom Minas from USA has been elected to the position of Second Vice President.
- There was only one candidate for the position of Treasurer. Under the Bylaws, where there is only one nomination that person is elected for the position by acclamation, without a ballot being held. Daniel Grande from USA has been elected for the position of Treasurer.
- There were two candidates for the position of Secretary General. Therefore, an electronic ballot will be held for all members to choose between Elizaveta Kon from Italy, Gian Salzmann from Switzerland.
