Nominating Committee

The Nominating Committee shall consist of the President, Vice-President, the Immediate Past President, and three Council Members to be elected by the Council. The President shall serve as Chairman of the committee.

The purpose of the Nominating Committee is not to inhibit the Delegates’ choice of Officers but to ensure that suitable nominations are made by individuals or national bodies that those nominated are willing to stand and, if too many nominations should be made, to act as a preliminary filter. The Committee shall put forward (with the consent of the nominees) not more than four nominations for each of the three offices of Vice-President, Secretary-General, and Treasurer.

All nominees should be known internationally for their distinction in the field and for their ability to serve as Officers for their respective terms of office.

The Secretary-General should invite individuals and adhering bodies to submit names to the President at least three months prior to the date of the next Council Meeting at which the election will take place. The names and biographical details of selected nominees are to be circulated by the Secretary-General to Delegates at least one month prior to the election.
