Candidate Slate of OISTAT Architecture Commission Chair

May 18, 2020

Dear Members,

Election for OISTAT Architecture Commission Chair will take place during the 2020 OISTAT Architecture commission online meeting on June 19, 2020. Due to the global pandemic travel restrictions, the OISTAT Architecture commission meeting and election in 2020 will be held online. The exact time and Zoom Meeting link will be announced soon.

This year, Tim Foster, our current Chair of OISTAT Architecture commission will step down. We would like to thank Mr. Tim Foster for his achievement and commitment that opened up various possibilities for OISTAT Architecture. He will continue to support and cooperate with the newly elected Chair on the upcoming projects. The Headquarters has received one nomination: Mrs. Maaike Westinga (Netherlands), the Chiar of VPT. We would like to take this opportunity to introduce her below.
 
On July 3rd, 2017, the Statutes of OISTAT was ratified at OISTAT World Congress that sub-commissions are officially introduced to the structure of OISTAT working commissions. Guidelines for election of Chairs of sub-commissions can be found in OISTAT Statutes-Appendix 2:
 
APPENDIX 2
RULES FOR THE ELECTION OF THE PRESIDENT, THE MEMBERS OF THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE, THE CHAIRS OF COMMISSIONS AND SUB-COMMISSIONS.

 

A general schedule for elections which ensures continuity and complies with the Statutes shall be made by the Executive Committee.

D. THE CHAIRS OF SUB-COMMISSIONS

  1. All members of OISTAT Centres, Individual Members and delegates of Associate Members are eligible to be elected as Chair of a Sub-Commission. 
  2. At least six months before a Sub-Commission meeting takes place at which a Chair is to be elected, the EC will ask the OISTAT Centres, Individual Members, Associate Members and other active members of the Sub-Commission to nominate candidates for the post of Chair of the Sub-Commission in question.
  3. The OISTAT Centres, Individual Members, Associate Members and other active members of the Sub-Commission should send names and addresses of possible candidates to the EC within two months.
  4. The EC can appoint one or more persons who will contact the persons in question for further information.
  5. This list will be made public at least two months before the Commission meeting at which the election is to take place.
  6. All active members of the Sub-Commission, who are in any way a member of OISTAT, and attending that Sub-Commission meeting will be entitled to vote.
  7. Every active member of the Sub-Commission, who is in any way member of OISTAT, has a full vote.
  8. The election takes place by secret ballot.
  9. The candidate who has the highest number of votes cast, if these are more than half of the votes cast, will become Chair.
  10. If such a result is not obtained during the first election, then a second election will be held between the two candidates with the highest number of votes. If two candidates have equally received the second highest number of votes, then an election shall first be held between these two candidates.
  11. After the Chair has been elected, one or more Vice-Chairs will be chosen.
  12. Should the Chair resign or otherwise leave office during his/her term of office, the Vice-Chair will hold office until the next scheduled meeting.

If new Statutes might come to effect as a result of voting at the Small Congress, these elections will nevertheless be carried out under the current Statutes, as the procedure for the elections has already been set to motion according to the rules currently in force.
 
Thank you for your support of OISTAT. We look forward to seeing you at OISTAT Architecture online meeting this year!
