Elections to the Executive
In the 2018 Congress in Prague, three seats are up for election to the Executive including the President. Jane Horsewell, who has been the President for many years, declared already when she was elected in 2014 that it would be the last term she serves as the President. This means that we will elect a new President in 2018.
Two more members are up for the election; Nuutti Hiltunen from Finland who has been in the board for four years and Gunilla Åhrén from Sweden who has been in the board for eight years. Gunilla is currently the Vice-President.
We want to encourage all the member organisations to discuss any candidates that you would like to put forward. Remember that the ESCIF statues states:
“Only members of a national spinal cord injury consumer organisation that holds membership of ESCIF are eligible for election to the Executive. The candidature of the person in question must have the approval of the governing board of the national organisation of which they are a member.”
We will call for nominations again at a later stage. However, you can send in nominations already now. Please, send your nominations and presentations of the candidates to Urs Styger, firstname.lastname@example.org. The presentations of your candidates (and those who are standing for re-election) will be sent out together with the notification of the Assembly that will be sent to all the delegates at least six weeks in advance of the Assembly.
