In accordance with IPA Rule 9, Section B (1) e., there is still the possibility for further nominations to be submitted by the membership:

Nominations by Petition of IPA Members.  A candidate for President, President-Elect or Treasurer may be nominated by a written petition of at least 150 Members (50 from each Geographical Area).  A candidate for Representative may be nominated by a written petition of at least 100 Members from the respective Geographic Area (with not more than 50 from any Constituent Organization or, in the case of the Regional Association, of any of its Affiliate Societies).  Nominations by petition must be accompanied by the written consent of the nominee and actually received by the Vice President by the end of November of the year preceding a Congress.

All nominations by petition must be addressed to Adriana Prengler, IPA Vice President, and be received by the IPA office (by email to [email protected], or by post to Unit B, Book House, 261a City Road, London EC1V 1AH, UK) by 30 November 2022. Nominations by petition must be accompanied by a list of the appropriate number of names (as stated in the paragraph above). Nominations by petition received after 30 November cannot be accepted.
The IPA Procedural Code document Rules, Limits and Procedures for IPA Elections can be found here. Appendix 4 presents the “Guidelines for the Conduct of Election Campaigns and the Mandate of the Elections Committee”. It is important that these guidelines are adhered to if we are to have a smooth elections process.

*Definition of ‘In Good Standing’:
The expression ‘in good standing’ shall apply:

a. to those Constituent Organizations from which the IPA has received the dues of all their Members in full by 31 December for any calendar year, or 
b. to those Members of Constituent Organizations from whom the IPA has received their dues in full by 31 December for any calendar year, or 
c. to those Direct Members from whom the IPA has received their dues in full by 31 December for any calendar year, or 
d. to any Constituent Organizations or Direct Members who received and complied with special payment arrangements agreed with the Treasurer, whereby some or all of their dues for the calendar year or any prior years are not yet payable on 31 December.  A Constituent Organization which does not comply with special payment terms agreed with the Treasurer will not be regarded as ‘in good standing’.
