Congratulations to Dr. Lui who said in his acceptance speech “I am looking forward to it”. We are sure that Dr. Lui’s leadership will be innovative and engaging and we are looking forward to it, too.

At the time of a meeting during the fourth year of a term of office, the ILDS Board of Directors selects from its members, not retiring at the end of that term of office, a candidate for President Elect of the ILDS to become President for the term of office commencing immediately following the next WCD.

The candidate selected as President Elect will be nominated for President during the first meeting of the new Board of Directors meeting taking place after the Ordinary General Meeting during the WCD.

At this Meeting:

a) the appointment of the President Elect as President must be approved by the ILDS Board.

b) The new President nominates, from the members of the Board, the Secretary-General and the Treasurer, whose appointments must be approved by the ILDS Board.

c) The President may nominate, from the members of the Board, at least two additional Directors to complete the Executive Committee, whose appointments must be approved by the ILDS Board (see art 46 (5) of the Articles of Association).

d) The new ILDS President is announced at the closing ceremony of the WCD.

The ILDS President nominates all standing committee Chairs. The Secretary-General will be on all standing committees (the President being a member ex-officio), and the Treasurer will be on all standing committees that might impact ILDS finances.

NOTE The above procedure is subject to the ILDS' Articles, which do not exclude alternative procedures being adopted by the Directors and shall prevail in the event of any conflict.
