The new Governing Board of the International Science Council (ISC) will be elected during the founding General Assembly in July 2018. According to the new Council’s Statutes and Rules of Procedure, as discussed and agreed during the October 2017 meeting in Taipei, this process will be overseen by an Elections Committee, composed of the Presidents of ICSU and ISSC, and of four additional members, to be elected by the ISSC and ICSU memberships.
On behalf of the Presidents of ISSC and ICSU, we hereby ask all voting members of ISSC to participate in the election of the four members of the Elections Committee.
For that purpose, an electronic voting system is now set up for the ISSC members to vote on the above-mentioned question and can be accessed by clicking on the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SDL7NVY
Please select four candidates out of the list of 8 candidates by 12 AM (midnight) CET on 20 December 2017. In choosing your candidates, please be mindful to select candidates that reflect the full disciplinary diversity of the new Council. Each voting member of ISSC (ISC Member Organisation or ISC Member Association, Union or Council) should vote only once, indicating the membership category and name of the organisation. Please note that you will be asked for your name and to confirm that you are entitled to vote on behalf of the organisation member of the ISSC.
Current dual members of ISSC and ICSU have also received an e-mail with voting procedures from ICSU. Dual members can vote either using the link included in this e-mail or by sending back the voting slip included in the e-mail sent by the ICSU Secretariat. They can however only vote once.
The four candidates receiving the most votes will be invited to participate in the Elections Committee. Elections Committee candidates-final list.
