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.

It gives us great pleasure to inform you that Dr Cross has accepted her election as President for the next term. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Ed Bertram and Dr Marco Tulio Medina for running. We are sure that they, along with all of our members, will join us in congratulating Dr Cross on her election and wish her a productive and successful tenure as President.
Out of the 122 Chapters, 96 voted while a further 11 were ineligible owing to non-payment of dues. The remaining 15 Chapters were eligible but did not participate.
