- The term for this year’s EC election is: 2023~2026 (four-year term)
- EC members shall be nominated and elected for a specified member country or region. The member country or region will be the place where the EC member resides and carries out his or her professional work.
- Only APSCE members can nominate persons for the EC member election, and any APSCE member can nominate up to two (2) voting/non-voting members for election to the EC by all voting members.
- Any APSCE member can second up to two (2) nominations.
- In order to enhance its international presence, APSCE may have up to five (5) EC members from non-member countries or regions, which are nations and regions outside of the Asia-Pacific Region. Such persons must also satisfy the eligibility requirements. A non-member country or region can be represented by at most one (1) EC member. Where the total number of filled EC positions from non-member country or region is less than five (5), a non-member country or region may be represented by two (2) EC Members.
- In view of the aforementioned rule, there is one country that has hit the country cap this year – India. Thus, any nominee from India will not be eligible for the EC election this year.
- All nominees will be vetted by the Elections Subcommittee to ensure that the nominee standing for the EC election complies with the requirements of the APSCE Constitution (access at: https://new.apsce.net/constitution-and-guidelines/ ). Only candidates approved by the Elections Subcommittee will stand for election. However, if the President finds it is better for the Society to loosen one or more conditions of the nomination eligibility as an exceptional case, he or she can propose the motion and get EC members’ approval to validate such nominations.
