  • Voting for the new Board, Sections and Nominating Committee members will be conducted under the responsibility of the Executive Board.
  • The Executive Board may proceed to conduct said elections up to four (4) months before the general assembly.
  • Said elections may be conducted by electronic voting procedure.
  • The EAPC Nominating Committee will be responsible for nominating to the general assembly, for its vote, candidates for the position of President-Elect, Secretary and Treasurer and Nominating Committee members.
  • Pre-selection of Sections nuclei members is delegated to the Section Chair, Chair elect and Secretary.
  • Only EAPC Members having settled their dues 2 months ahead of an election (i.e. when the voting platform opens) and who are still members on that date have voting rights.
  • Voting will be by secret ballot. If only one candidate is proposed for any position, a vote will take place in any case (with three voting options: agree / disagree / abstain). The proposed candidate(s) will be elected by simple majority. Abstentions, null and blank votes are not included in the number of votes cast.
  • If any candidate is not elected by a majority of votes, their candidature will fail. The Nominating Committee must make a new proposal within three months, followed by voting through secret ballot. The Executive Board will supervise said vote.
