The Election Task Force has written to Full Members giving notice of the elections and inviting the Members to nominate candidates to stand for election to the positions of President, Secretary General and Treasurer on the International Executive Committee for the term 2009-2013. Members are also invited to nominate candidates for the position of Vice President for their region. In total, seven Vice Presidents will be elected.
The nomination period will end in early October when the Election Task Force will review all of the nominations submitted to ensure that they meet the criteria as laid down in Bye Law III of the IBE Constitution. Once nominations have been processed, those nominated will be invited to prepare and submit an Election Statement, which will be circulated to Full Members in early November, along with the ballot papers.
