New year means new elections for our LYMEC IMS delegates.

Since the Spring Congress is already fast approaching, we hereby announce the yearly elections to be held on 3-6 February 2021 to elect the IMS delegates for 2021. We hereby open the call for candidacies for the positions.

Deadline for applications is Monday, 18 January 2021 at 14 h CET (Brussels time). To apply, please send the following materials to office(at)lymec.eu:

  • A motivation letter
  • Your CV
  • A picture (minimum 300*300 pixels)
  • A short (max 50 words) motivation for the website
    NB: The CV’s will be available on the LYMEC website for the duration of the elections, so please refrain from including personal data such as address, phone number etc.

All candidates will be presented on an election website that will open by 20 January 2021. The candidacies will also be presented in an email to all individual members, and an online debate between candidates will take place between January 21 and 29 (exact date will be defined after the deadline for candidacies).

The tasks and duties of the IMS delegates are to represent the Individual Members at the statutory meetings of LYMEC (Congresses), to coordinate the IMS input at these meetings: resolutions, motions and amendments, and to liaise with the Steering Committee.

Please keep in mind that being an IMS delegate is a serious commitment and you will have responsibilities. There are two congresses in the mandate, we strongly encourage people to only apply if you certainly can attend these congresses in Paris and Skopje (dates on our website in the calendar). Please double-check your duties in our IMS Internal Rules.

The elections will run from Wednesday, 3rd of February 14 h CET until Saturday, 6th of February 14 h CET (Brussels time). The results will be announced shortly after the end of the elections.

The elections will be conducted online, in accordance with the statutes of the organisation. A separate email with instructions regarding the voting will be sent in due time. All Individual Members who have paid their membership fee by 4th of January 2020 are eligible to run and vote in the elections. If you are unsure about the status of your membership, contact the Secretary General (office(at)lymec.eu).
