Guidelines for the election of a new EWGLA Coordination Board

  1. A EWGLA Board consists of three people from different countries;
  2. Every second EWGLA meeting (which corresponds roughly to 3 years), a new EWGLA Board is elected which should correspond to a total renovation of the previous Board;
  3. Only EWGLA members can be part of a EWGLA Board;
  4. A proposal can be made by every EWGLA member and should reflect the will of three people to work together on the coordination of EWGLA;
  5. A EWGLA member can be part of at most one proposal;
  6. After receiving all the proposals, the current EWGLA Board will inform all EWGLA members about the existing proposals and will conduct a voting process;
  7. The deadline for the submission of proposals is determined by the current EWGLA Board but will be no less than 30 days before the voting. All the process should be completed and the corresponding results announced before the EWGLA meeting in which the new board takes office;
  8. The elected board takes office in the EWGLA session of the EWGLA meeting.

Major activities of the EWGLA Coordination Board

  • Promotion and support to the organization of regular EWGLA meetings;
  • Handling of the financial resources of EWGLA;
  • Moderation of a list-server that can be used by all EWGLA members to share information about meetings, literature, funding opportunities, job announcements, etc;
  • Maintenance of the EWGLA web site;
  • Have fun and, of course, help determining the future of Location Theory up to certain extent.

Next election

The current EWGLA Board will be replaced in the EWGLA XXII Meeting on 2015.
