NOMINATING COMMITTEE TERMS of REFERENCE

- The NC to considers the all posts to be filled and may make nominations for some or all the posts (including those posts where the existing post holder is eligible for re-election) prior to the general invitation to national and regional organisations being sent out.
- In making nominations of chairs the NC must consult with the current chairs.
- After the closing date for nominations the NC may make additional nominations or co-nominate nominations received.
- When considering nominations and when guiding Council the NC must take into account the following:
- the desirability of a regional balance
- the desirability of chairs having served as a member of the Committee to which they are being appointed as chair.
as well as the individual merits of the nominees. All nominees should be known internationally for their distinction in the field, for their organizing ability, and for their ability to serve as Officers or chairs their respective terms of office.
