Dear Globelics member,
as you are probably aware of we are going to begin the process of election of new board members. According to Article 4 of our constitution – “Election of the GSB takes place every three years. Members of GSB are elected by Members of GLOBELICS through online voting. The GLOBELICS Secretariat implements the election procedure. To create election outcomes that are diverse in terms of nationality and gender each candidate will appear on one out of five lists. 16 candidates will be elected from four lists for Africa, Asia, America and Europe and two candidates will be elected from a list of alumni of GLOBELICS academies”.
Please note that only Globelics Members can be nominated for the Scientific Board election.
The election process will take place in three subsequent phases. Procedures for the election are as follows:
- 1stphase: Call for nomination from July 1stuntil July 20th.
In this phase all members of Globelics can nominate members other than themselves for the candidature for the Scientific Board by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that any member can nominate candidates for any of the five lists. For more information on this matter, see Globelics Constitution <www.globelics.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Globelics_Constitution-2.pdf>.
- 2ndphase: Confirmation of candidatures from July 27thuntil August 8th. (New date)
Once we collect all nominations for the Scientific Board, the Secretariat will contact all nominees and confirm whether or not they are willing to be official candidates from July 27th until August 8th. (New date)
In case they decide to become a candidate for the election of the Scientific Board, they shall confirm their affiliation, location and category (scholar or alumni). For more information on this matter, see Globelics Constitution <www.globelics.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Globelics_Constitution-2.pdf>.
- 3rdphase: Voting process will be postponed to the 2nd half of August, with a date to be defined.
We will disclose the official list of candidates for the Scientific Board on August (date to be announced) by an e-mail to all members and on our web page. During this period, you will be able to vote for your candidates through a personal link that we will send to you.
After the voting process finishes, the Secretariat will publish a list of all elected members.
