Elections & Voting

Elections for membership of the Steering Committee take place at the annual conference, during the Assembly of Members. All IGeLU members are eligible to vote (one vote per institution).

The position of Chair is held for three years, and ordinary Steering Committee members have a two year term, but not all members are elected in one year. Note that the role of Treasurer is not elected, but is an ex officio member of the Steering Committee.

The schedule of upcoming elections for membership of the Steering Committee is as follows:

  • 2016: 2 ordinary members
  • 2017: 3 ordinary members
  • 2018: 2 ordinary members and the Chair
Proxy votes
Institutions that are paid-up members with the IGeLU annual fee are recognized as Members and have the right to participate in the Assembly.
According to the Statute, we need a quorum of one third of all Members to validate the decisions of the Assembly concerning projects, plan of activities, expenses, election of the Steering Committee members, etc.This is a crucial step and it is of great importance in the life of the Association, both from a legal and operational point of view.Members not attending the Annual Meeting may give to a third party their authorization, in writing, for a proxy vote.
Your IGeLU referent receives an e-mail three weeks before the conference about voting and proxy voting.
If your institution didn’t receive the e-mail please let us know contacting the secretariat at secretariat {at} igelu(.)org
