Dear SEEDIG community,  

In September - November 2017, SEEDIG held elections [1] for its
Executive Committee, in line with the community-approved Terms of
Reference (ToR). Following these elections, five members were elected
for different terms [2]: two members for a two-year term, and three
members for a three-year term. In November 2019, the terms of two
Executive Committee members (Su Sonia Herring and Sasho Dimitrijoski)
expire, and we thank our colleagues for their valuable contributions to
SEEDIG so far. 

In line with the ToR, A PARTIAL ELECTION PROCESS IS HEREBY LAUNCHED [3]
FOR THESE TWO SEATS. SEEDIG community members who meet the eligibility
criteria (as per the ToR), including the two Executive Committee members
whose terms are expiring, are eligible for election for the two seats. 

The initiation of the election process consists of announcing the
election calendar and launching a call for volunteers to serve on the
Election Committee. 

1. ELECTION CALENDAR 

As per Art.6.2. of the ToR, please find here the calendar for the
overall election process [4]. 

2. CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS TO SERVE ON THE ELECTION COMMITTEE 

As per Art.6 Section B of the ToR, the election process is to be managed
by a three-member Election Committee. The main tasks of the Committee
are outlined here [5]. 

SEEDIG COMMUNITY MEMBERS WILLING TO VOLUNTEER FOR THE ELECTION COMMITTEE
ARE INVITED TO EXPRESS THEIR INTEREST VIA THIS MAILING LIST, BY MONDAY,
21 OCTOBER, END OF DAY. A simple expression of interest is enough, no
elaborated motivation letters are required. 

Kindly note that the seats on this Committee are to be filled in on a
first come first served basis. Those who plan to run for elections are
disqualified from volunteering or appointment on the Election Committee.
The Committee may also include observers from among SEEDIG supporting
organisations (as per Art. 6.8). 

With this, the election process is officially open. Should you have
questions on any of the above, please raise them via this list.  

Thank you! 

Best regards, 

Sorina
