As provided in the new SNETP statutes voted on 22 May 2019, the General Assembly of SNETP is in charge of electing its President, Vice-President (VP) and the members of the Governing Board (GB) (article 8).
According to the statutes (Article 9, 12), the President & Vice President represent the association vis-à-vis third parties and can make legally bound decisions by signature of at least one of them. There are nineteen members of the Governing including three representatives appointed by the pillars (NUGENIA, ESNII and NC2I), eight members representing the private sector and eight from research and technical organisations elected by the General Assembly. Governing Board members duties are listed in article 9 of the Statutes.
The President, Vice President and Governing Board members “are elected for a two-year mandate, with elections conducted in alternative years”. Exceptionally, as decided in the SNETP Transition Executive Committee on 19-20 September 2019, the Governing Board members will be elected for three years. The “alternation mandate rule” will then continue as expected.
The SNETP Secretariat invites all interested candidates for one of these three positions (President, VP and GB member) to express their candidature to the SNETP Secretariat (firstname.lastname@example.org
) and provide required elements no later than 7 January 2020.
The elements required to formally consider the candidate are: a CV in English and a cover letter. All candidates should make sure that their organisation reserves time for them to honour their duties in their respective roles within SNETP.
