Call for Nominations: President-Elect and Treasurer

Here you can nominate candidates for President-Elect and Treasurer of the EAPP Executive Committee (EC).

The President-Elect is elected for two years and then becomes the President for another two years; thereafter, they become the Past President for an additional two years. The President is the Chair of the EC and presides over all Members’ meetings. In close collaboration with other EC members, they oversee all EAPP and EC activities, formulate and set out the strategic vision and purpose of the association, represent the EAPP in official communications, among other tasks. The President-Elect collaborates with the President to learn the role of the President and is ideally someone who is familiar with the EAPP and its mission, goals, and values.

The Treasurer is responsible for all aspects of the financial management of the association, working closely with other members of the EC to safeguard EAPP’s finances. This includes general financial oversight; financial planning and budgeting; financial reporting; banking, bookkeeping, and record-keeping. The Treasurer’s term length is 4 years.

According to the statutes of the EAPP, any member of the association can nominate potential candidates and is eligible to be nominated as President-Elect or Treasurer. To be eligible for nomination, a candidate must be an active EAPP member at the time of the election. After the nomination period, the eligible candidates will be announced and all EAPP members will be invited to cast their votes in an electronic election later this summer. The President-Elect andthe Treasurer will begin their term of office right after the 21st European Conference of Personality in August 2024.

The EAPP EC is strongly committed to diversity and inclusion. We particularly welcome nominations for the EAPP members with primary affiliation in regions of Europe and the rest of the world that are currently underrepresented in the EC (for the current list of EC members, please see https://eapp.org/organization/executive-committee/). 

Candidates who receive the largest number of votes from the EAPP members in the election will be declared elected, subject to the restriction that no more than two members with main affiliations in the same country, disregarding the President, can serve on the EC. For this reason, due to the present composition of the EC, we are not suggesting to nominate candidates with main affiliation in Germany for the positions.

Any nomination must be supported by at least two members of the EAPP. The search committee (see below) will be happy to assist with connecting with potential supporting EAPP members. The members’ list can be consulted at www.eapp.org (available only to EAPP members upon login). Prospective candidates must consent to nomination before being put forward for election.

The EC has appointed a search committee with the task of supporting the search for nominations. The search committee is chaired by Anu Realo (A.Realo@warwick.ac.uk), Past President of the EAPP, supported by Fritz Götz (Friedrich.goetz@ubc.ca), Diversity Officer of the EAPP, and Ana Butkovic (secretary@eapp.org), Secretary of the EAPP. In case you have any questions about the nomination process or the vacant roles, please do not hesitate to contact the Chair of the Search Committee at A.Realo@warwick.ac.uk

The nomination for President-Elect and Treasurer will close on 8 June 2024 at 23:59 CET. To nominate a candidate, please complete the nomination form for President-Elect or Treasurer and submit it via email to the Secretary of the EAPP, Ana Butkovic (secretary@eapp.org).
