Dear ISPAD Members,
Following the technical problems in e-voting prior to the Annual General Meeting in Toronto and the subsequent cancellation of the e-voting results by the election scrutineers, a thorough revision of the e-voting process has been undertaken.
The e-voting for Advisory Council Members and Treasurer wasre-opened. E-voting was available to ISPAD Members during the following period:
- Wednesday, October 1, 2014, 12:00 (UTC + 1) - voting opens
- Tuesday, October 28, 2014, 12:00 (UTC + 1) - voting ends
The following positions were open for voting:
- Treasurer 2015-2017 (Treasurer Elect 2014-2015) - 1 pediatrician
- Advisory Board Members 2014-2016 - 3 physicians and 1 healthcare professional

In order to vote and access the candidates' manifestos, you will need your ISPAD login details and to have a valid as well as up-to-date ISPAD membership. Please be advised that ISPAD Members who have not paid their membership fees for 2014-2015 will not be entitled to vote. Your membership can be renewed by following the steps here. Please note that if we do not receive your payment by Saturday, October 18, 2014, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to vote online.
E-voting was initiated in 2013 to allow all members who are up-to-date in the payment of their Society Membership Fees to vote, thereby not restricting voting only to those attending the Annual Conference.
We wish all of you to use this option and exercise your democratic views by participating in the e-voting. Input from all of the membership is important to obtain excellent and fair representation in the Advisory Council.
The results of the election will be announced online on November 3, 2014.
