OPEN CALL: Become an ISPO Executive Member

20 March 2024

Message from the Past President (5)

The ISPO Protocol Committee kindly invites your National Member Society to propose nominations for the 2025-2027 ISPO Executive Board. In accordance with the Constitution, the Protocol Committee and current Executive Board will review all submitted nominations and create a list of recommended candidates for consideration by the International Committee.

ISPO is an international organization with over 70 Member Societies working in close collaboration and with common goals. Each Member Society can make one nomination only, which may either be a member from another Member Society, or from within your individual Member Society.

Please note that it is possible to nominate an individual for a specific officer post but also as a Board member. If successful in both positions, the person vacates the seat as a Board member to the next ranked candidate. Attached to this email and available for download here you will find a document outlining the procedure and timeline for the elections.

If a nomination is made to one of the officer positions and the same individual is also nominated for a seat on the Board this is considered as one nomination.

Executive Board members should represent the multi-disciplinary membership of the Society and its worldwide distribution. The different professional disciplines, geographical and cultural backgrounds as well as gender diversity of the members should be considered to ensure an equitable distribution. All nominees must be members of the Society in good standing.

The nomination papers that are to be submitted to ISPO Head Office include the following:

1)     Candidate Form:
The candidate, after being notified by the NMS that they have been nominated, is requested to complete this form with his/her personal and professional information, as well as his/her motivation to join the ISPO Executive Board.

2)     Nomination Form for Member Society:
A supporting citation by the nominating Member Society, not exceeding 500 words, to present reasons for the nomination and highlight why the candidate is considered appropriate for election.

Please submit your nominations by 15 April 2024.

Please do not hesitate to contact ISPO for any further information (headoffice@ispoint.org).
