The Board is responsible for developing appropriate policies to archive the objectives of EAGE. It acts in the interests of the members, according to these objectives.
The election of Board members will take place in a ballot open to all members of the Association with support from the Nominations Committee (NC).
Overview Board positions
The Board consists of 10 members (with 7 as minimum and 10 maximum).
An elected candidate for President becomes Vice-President-Elect for the first year of office, automatically becoming Vice-President at the beginning of the second year, and finally serving as President for the third year. The President is not eligible for re-election.
The Chairs of the Divisions serve in a rolling sequence of twice two years. The candidate serves as Vice-Chair for a first period of two years. This is followed by a second period of two years as Chair of that Division and, ex officio, a member of the EAGE Board, following approval from the members.
All other Board members, i.e. the Secretary- Treasurer, Publications Officer, Technical Programme Officer, Education officer and Membership & Cooperation Officer, are elected for two years and can be re-elected twice. The maximum period in office for these positions is six years.
Nominations and proposals for the vacant positions are solicited from the EAGE membership. The Board, acting through the Nominations Committee, shall consider all candidate proposals and shall nominate one or more candidates for each office to be filled. The Board will seek diversity of Board membership in terms of discipline, sector, division, geographical location, nationality and gender. Alternatively members can be nominated by petition.
- A nomination by petition must be signed by at least 20 members, and must be accompanied by the written consent of the nominee
- No member may submit and/or sign more than one nomination for each office
