2022 IMS delegate elections!

New year means new elections for our LYMEC IMS delegates!

Since the Spring Congress is approaching and the new year is starting, we hereby announce the yearly elections to be held on 28-31 January 2022 to elect the IMS delegates for 2022. We hereby open the call for candidacies for the positions.

Deadline for applications is Wednesday, 12 January 2022 at 16 h CET (Brussels time). To apply, please send the following materials to office(at)lymec.eu:

  • A motivation letter (pdf file)
  • Your CV (pdf file)
  • A picture (minimum 300*300 pixels) for the website 
  • 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 14 January 2022. The candidacies will also be presented in an email to all individual members, and an online debate between candidates will take place between the days before the elections (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 (the Spring Congress will be taking place between 20-22 May 2022 in TBC while the Autumn Congress probably between 18-20 November 2022 in Skopje, North Macedonia). Please double-check your duties in our IMS Internal Rules.

The elections will run from Friday, 28 January 14 h CET until Monday, 31 January 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 3 January 2022 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).

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Secretary General, or one of the out-going delegates Christine, Clara and Tim at (imsdelegates(at)lymec.eu)
