Elections

Management Committee elections are now open

Elections for the ILAE Vice President, Secretary General and Treasurer for the 2021-25 term are open. According to the Constitution, all newly elected members of the Executive Committee must be primary members of different countries, and not more than two can come from the same region. In consequence, as Dr. J Helen Cross from the United Kingdom has been elected as the next President, only one more candidate from Europe, but not from the United Kingdom, can be elected. Of all other regions, up to two candidates can be elected.

Chapters have been asked to vote for five persons from at least three regions on the list. If they vote for fewer than five candidates, the vote must include candidates from three regions.
