In 2019 the EAS Executive Committee defined in detail the processes for the Society’s elections; these were first implemented in 2020. The Executive Committee (EC) appoints the Chair of the Election Committee (ELCOM), and the Society’s members are engaged in the selection of its members.
The newly elected members, joining ELCOM chair Prof von Eckardstein on the committee 2023-2025, are:
Review the EAS members’ nominations to replace retiring Officers or Ordinary Members of the Executive Committee.
Select up to five candidates who will stand for any one elected position, based on;
- the nominee’s qualifications and suitability for the position (compared to the ideal candidate profile)
- geographical spread of the candidates and existing members of the EC
- gender balance
