SIOPSA President-Elect Nominations

A call for nominations for 2017/2018 President-Elect

Dear Member,

Call for nominations for President-Elect 2017/2018

At the 20th SIOPSA Annual General Meeting held at the CSIR, Pretoria on 26 July 2017, in the absence of the nomination and election of a President-Elect for SIOPSA, the members at the AGM mandated SIOPSA Executive to call for nominations of the President-Elect. The action and timeframe stipulated is to reconvene a Special General Meeting within 90 days, whereupon an election for the new President-Elect will be finalised. Other matters which were arising at the Annual General Meeting will also be addressed further, after which agreement will be reached with members.  

Given this request at the AGM full members of SIOPSA are invited to submit the details of a person to be proposed by a Special General Meeting of SIOPSA for appointment as President-Elect in terms of sub-sections 8.1 – 8.4 of Clause 8 of the SIOPSA Constitution.

8.2 Such nominations shall be signed by a proposer and seconder, who shall be full members, and shall bear an acceptance by the nominee of his or her nomination. A short CV and manifesto of the nominee shall be attached.


8.3 The names of persons so nominated received by the Secretary not less than sixty days before the date of such meeting shall be circulated with the Notice of Meeting.


8.4 The President-elect shall be elected by secret ballot at the Annual General Meeting from amongst persons so nominated, and shall become a member of the incoming Executive Committee.


The elected person will enroll as the President-Elect of the Society at this Special General Meeting to be held on Wednesday, 1 November 2017. The term for the newPresident-Elect will be for the period of 1 November 2017 to 25th July 2018.  Completed nominations, a short manifesto and Curriculum Vitae of the individuals should reach the SIOPSA Secretary no later than 1 September 2017.
