The members of the Executive Committee and Advisory Committee of IALS met in Leh on 1 September, 2019 on the sidelines of the IALS conference currently underway. At this meeting it was decided to follow the spirit of the IALS conference and provide the members who were not able to attend the conference to cast their vote for the positions that are currently up for election. It was also decided that the final result of the election will not be declared till email votes have been counted.
Thus, the members who are at the conference will cast their vote in person at the conference. Through this post and through email being sent to all members, we are opening the election to all members. Please use the official ballot to cast your vote. The other PDF provides information on who have been nominated. You will notice that the position of Secretary and President do not appear in the ballot sheet as only one person has been nominated for each position and are elected unopposed.
You will need to fill in your name on the ballot and any sheet without a name will not be counted. We assure you that your choice will not be disclosed to anyone and your name is only being recorded to ensure that there is no double voting and all voted are cast by members. The email ballots have three editable spaces for you to type your name, and pick a candidate for each position. You do not need to print the ballot our. You can fill it on your computer.
Please ensure that you are a member of IALS and have not voted at the conference. The ballot will be disqualified if you are not a current member or have already voted.
Please send all your queries and completed ballots to firstname.lastname@example.org. .
The deadline for receipt of email votes is 23:59 hours on 17 September, 2019. The final result of the elections will be announced after these votes have been counted and added to the tally of the votes cast at the conference. .
