The election process
Every two years, election for the councils and executive council take place. The process is the following.
First members nominate who they see fit as becoming council members and they nominate such members. They need to contact said members because they have to accept the nomination. They also need to send a short CV, one or two paragraph no more. They also need to make sure they have paid their membership.
At the end of the nomination period and if there are more than 10 nominated members the vote start. Members are sent by mail the list of candidate with their short CV and they vote by mail. The first 10 candidates become council members.
The second phase which is the election of the executive committee takes place during the SASAS conference. The President, vice president, secretary and treasury are elected by the new council members present at the SASAS conference. One cannot be President more than 3 mandates (6 years) but other executive members can stay on for more than 6 years.
