IMPORTANT NOTES

n The term for this year’s EC election is: 2020~2023 (four-year term)

n As countries including USA, Canada, Norway, and Germany have already hit the country caps on EC election, any nominee from these countries will not be eligible for EC election this year.

n EC Members shall be nominated and elected for a specified member country or region. The member country or region will be the place where the EC Member resides and carries out his or her professional work.

n Only APSCE Member can nominate persons for the EC Member election, and any APSCE Member can nominate up to two (2) Voting/Non-voting Members for election to the EC by all Voting Members.

n Any APSCE member can second up to two (2) nominations.

n In order to enhance its international presence, APSCE may have up to five (5) EC Members from non-member countries or regions, which are nations and regions outside of the Asia-Pacific. Such persons must also satisfy the eligibility requirements. A non-member country or region can be represented by at most one (1) EC Member. Where the total number of filled EC positions from non-member country or region is less than five (5), a non-member country or region may be represented by two (2) EC Members.

n All nominees will be vetted by the Elections Subcommittee to ensure that the nominee standing for the EC election complies with the requirements of APSCE Constitution (access at: https://apsce.net/about.php?id=26). Only candidates approved by the Elections Subcommittee will stand for election. However, if the President finds it is better for the Society to loosen one or more conditions of the nomination eligibility as an exceptional case, he or she can propose the motion and get EC members’ approval to validate such nominations.

n Every EC member voted in has to obtain 50% or more of the cast votes.
