The assembly will include voting for President, Vice-President, and Ordinary Members of the ICEHO Board, which is done by ballot. We invite the member organizations to make additional nominations from the floor for any of these positions, and especially encourage nominations for Vice-President. According to the ICEHO Constitution, the procedure for such nominations is:
Additional nominations may be made from the floor of the General Assembly, provided that each person so nominated has the support in writing of his or her Member Association or Institutional Member, and at least three (3) other Members, and subject to confirmation that the nominee agrees to serve if elected. Such nominations shall be accompanied by biographical details.
Each member organization is entitled to one Voting Representative at the meeting. An organization can also vote by proxy by notifying the Secretary of the person who will be voting on the member’s behalf.
