ICHEME has pushed back the vote for Congress, its new advisory body. The ballot will now open at 09:00 BST on 11 October. It was previously reported that the vote would commence on 8 October. In alignment with this change, voting will now close at 23:59 BST on 25 October.
The decision was made to address a delay in announcing the final candidates. The announcement was scheduled for 24 September but did not occur until 08:30 BST on 27 September due to administrative issues.
Congress Regulations dictate that voting shall open 14 days after candidate names have been announced. Therefore, to allow candidates the full 14 days of campaigning the voting period was moved.
Voting will take place electronically as far as practically possible. An electronic ballot will be issued by Mi-Voice to all eligible members with a valid email address on 11 October. Members who have requested to vote but do not have a valid e-mail address will receive hard copies of the voting papers by post. Members are only eligible to vote for candidates within their constituency.
IChemE members can learn more about the Congress candidates by visiting Interface where they can read candidate biographies, election statements, and answers to questions from the membership.
Further questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
