Role & responsibility

EAS' governing body is the Executive Committee. Elections to the Executive Committee take place annually, according to the procedures set out in the Society bylaws Article §5 (c) (i). Accordingly, and in line with the Society's status as a non-profit organisation based in Sweden, it is the responsibility of the Election Committee to independently select from the nominations a shortlist of candidates for election.

"ARTICLE §5 – MEMBERSHIP PROCEDURES

(c) Election of Office-Bearers and Executive Committee

(i) The names of members to replace retiring Officers or Ordinary Members of the Executive Committee may be proposed by a member of the Society who has obtained the written consent of the nominee. Such nominations shall be sent to the EAS office at least 3 months prior to the election. The nominations will be reviewed by an Election Committee, who will select from them the candidates to stand for election, based on (a) the nominee’s qualifications and suitability for the position (compared with the profile for the ideal candidate published on the Society’s website), (b) geographical spread of candidates and existing EC members and (c) gender balance.

Voting is held via a website-based ballot containing the names of the retiring members of the Executive Committee and the names of the candidates selected by the Election Committee. The completed ballot is submitted through the electronic voting system and is tabulated electronically. A member of the society is selected by the Executive Committee to monitor and review the election results for accuracy."
