Election Process

The members of the Executive Council serve the WAC in formulating policy and in facilitating communication among the members. Any member of the WAC is eligible to serve on the Council. Elections are held during the WAC business meeting at the triennial International Conferences on Copepoda. It is not necessary for the candidates to be personally present at the ICOC, but it has traditionally been the case that candidates commit, as far as possible, to participate in ICOCs during their periods in office. Normally all the officers (President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer) and several of the Council members stand for election or re-election at each business meeting. A new election will take place during the 11th International Conference on Copepoda in 2011. Details on the nomination process will be given when appropriate.
