IASSA is requesting applications from members to serve on the IASSA Council in 2021-2024. Any IASSA member in good standing may declare themselves up until 17:00 (5PM) applicant's local time on May 1, 2021.
These materials will be included in the Spring/Summer issue of the Northern Notes. Indigenous applicants and northern residents are especially encouraged.
The IASSA Council will have 9 members: 8 members elected by majority vote during the 2021 General Assembly at ICASS X, plus the past president.
Eligibility to Run as a Candidate for IASSA Council
In order to qualify to run in the IASSA 2021 election, all candidates for IASSA council must:
· be a member in good standing of IASSA;
· submit a brief statement (less than 200 words) with a photo of themselves to the IASSA Secretariat, on or before May 1, 2021;
· must be ready to participate in IASSA Council meetings (face-to-face or via teleconference ), and commit a substantial amount of time for IASSA affairs, including extensive discussions via e-mail correspondence.
Candidates for the IASSA Council will not be given an opportunity to address the online General Assembly at ICASS X, although they are strongly encouraged to attend; rather the applications will depend on the short statements submitted by each candidate, which will be made available electronically to our members prior to the election. Elections will take place online during ICASS X.
