Positions on the Executive of IPMS London are elected by the membership for a two-year term that begins in January of an odd-numbered year. In other words, the executive elected in January 2017 serves from January 2017 to December 2018.
A member may declare their own candidacy for a position or be nominated as a candidate by another member of the club. The candidate must consent to the nomination.
If there is only one candidate for a position they will be declared the winner by acclamation.
If there is more than one candidate for a position, the winner can be determined by a show of hands. However, any member of the club can call for a secret ballot.
Ballots shall be prepared and cast in secret. Three members of the club shall serve as scrutineers. The vote shall be counted and a winner declared. A motion to destroy ballots shall be called by the scrutineers and if passed by a majority of club members present, the ballots shall then be destroyed.
