IOR President and Elections
Nomination and election process for IOR President-Elect
In accordance with the IOR Constitution of 3 May 2016 the Board of Trustees make an initial recommendation to the Membership for a candidate or candidates for the next President-elect every 2-3 years.
Process for identifying and making President-Elect recommendation to membership
According to the Constitution a Nominating Committee chaired by the current President identifies potential suitable candidates based on the specification for the role and personal attributes summarised below:
A list of suitable candidates is considered by the Council and a name or names proposed to the Membership for consideration.
Members may propose additional candidates at any time up to the advertised closing date for nominations using the nomination form available above which must include the support of 20 additional members. Should there be more than one candidate for President-elect a web-based election is held in which eligible members vote and the results are announced at the AGM.
Following the results of the election, or if only one candidate has been proposed and no elections are necessary, the President-Elect appointment will commence after the AGM. The President-Elect is a Trustee of the IOR and joins the Board of Trustees to support the work of the President until the end of their term of office, usually in 12 months time.
