The term of the current AWES committee finishes at the end of this year. Interested AWES members should consider nominating themselves for the 2014-15 AWES Committee. The constitution of the AWES specifies that, “The Society shall be managed by a National Committee which shall comprise six elected persons, each of whom shall serve for a two year term, commencing on the first of January of an even numbered year. The members of the National Committee shall elect from themselves a Chairman, a Secretary, a Treasurer and any other positions they deem appropriate. The National Committee may co-opt additional members with the proviso that the total number of the Committee does not exceed eight at any one time. Election of the National Committee shall be carried out by email ballot of the registered membership of the Society. The ballot shall be completed before the 31st December in each odd-numbered year.”
