With leadership from IAVE’s Nominating Committee, chaired by Agnetta Nyalita (Kenya), youth representative to IAVE’s board of directors, we have begun the process for elections to the board of directors. Two positions are up for election, the Regional Representative for the Arab Nations and for male Youth Representative.
The Arab Nations
The Regional Representative for the Arab Nations will be replacing Patricia Nabti (Lebanon) who is completing her maximum two terms of service on the board. The Call for Nominations was distributed to IAVE members in that region on May 1 with a deadline for response of May 31. After confirmation of the candidates by the Nominating Committee, voting papers will be distributed on July 16 with voting remaining open through August 10. Only paid members of record as of May 31 are eligible to vote.
The Youth Representative
The IAVE board has established the policy that we always should have one female and one male youth representative. As our male representative, Daniel Buritica (Colombia), is completing his maximum two terms of service on the board, we are seeking a male replacement. The Call for Nominations was distributed on May 1 to all IAVE youth members, both voting and non-voting, and to National Representatives and board members. By policy, these are the groups eligible to make nominations for this position. The board will elect the new Youth Representative at its August meeting.
For more information on either of these positions or to receive a copy of the Call for Nominations, please email [email protected].
