Elections of the Steering Committee 2021-2022
Join the next Steering Committee
As stated in the statutes, any member of the Sustainability Network can be a candidate for the Steering Committee (SC).
Becoming a candidate
The SC is elected by the chairs of the local Sustainability Groups at the general meeting (next in May 2021). Candidates must apply via the following form at least 3 days before the election. To make sure that the voters know enough about the candidates to vote, the following form provides a small text area where candidates can provide a short biography and statement of motivation (form not active currently).
Voting as a chair
At the time of the election (May 2021), all chairs will receive a link to an anonymous poll. There, they will be able to find information about all candidates and cast their vote. In accordance with the network's and the MPG's structures, each chair will be assigned one vote for each institute they represent; e.g. a chair representing a Sustainability Group associated to three institutes will vote 3 times. Of course, if one chair was elected per institute for such a Sustainability Group, instead of a single chair for the whole group, then each chair will be assigned a single vote. As mentioned in the statutes, 5 people will be chosen to form the new SC: the candidates with the highest median in each of the three categories (scientist, technical, administrative) as well as the two candidates with the highest remaining scores.
