CANDIDATES for election to ICE Council in 2000 are required now. Eight Council members are to retire and a minimum of four fellows, one member, and one associate member are needed to take their place. The other two vacancies will be filled by either fellows or members.
Candidates need five sponsors and must show their willingness to stand. No member may support more than one nomination. Changes to By-law 61 mean that associate members who are incorporated engineers can now vote for territorial members.
Territorial members representing the Local Associations in South Western, Glasgow and West of Scotland, East Anglia, Northern Ireland, and North Western will also be retiring and there will be separate ballots to elect their successors. Local associations have already been asked to nominate candidates.
All members elected will serve for three years from November 2000. The Council holds six meetings a year, and the obligations of Council membership also include appointments to various committees, engineering boards, and panels.
All nomination forms must be returned to the Council office by 12 November. For more information and a nomination form telephone (0171) 665 2077 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
