WFSJ Election 2017: Candidates’ profiles are now online

Many high-quality applications were sent to the Nomination Committee (NC) to run for the WFSJ’s four (4) open international Board positions. The NC has decided to nominate nine (9) candidates for the next round of electronic voting. You can find the list of candidates and their profile on the 2017 Election – Candidates page.

Each member association will be able to vote on four (4) of the nine candidates. Please take the time to read their letters of intent and the other information. All of the candidates are eligible to run for a board position as they have fulfilled the nomination requirements.

We do want to hear from you! Whilst only designated representative can cast the vote electronically on behalf of their association, your individual queries to the candidates are encouraged.

The electronic voting will take place from 7 till 21 August via the SurveyMonkey platform. The link to the survey will be sent to the voting delegates via email before August 7th.

Many thanks to all of the candidates and thanks to the member associations for being part of the WFSJ.
