Frequently Asked Questions

What is the WSSCC Steering Committee?

The WSSCC Steering Committee is the governing body of WSSCC, and its members act in the best interests of all WSSCC members and stakeholders, in line with WSSCC’s agreed strategic priorities.  Combined, the skills, experiences and expertise of the Steering Committee should ensure achievement of the results described in WSSCC’s Strategic Plan and annual work plans, as well as the management of the organization.  Members of the Steering Committee are elected and/or appointed as per the agreed composition of the Steering Committee. (For more information, please refer to the WSSCC Steering Committee: Composition, Qualifications and Election Processes).  Once elected, a Steering Committee member serves a three-year term, unless the WSSCC Chairperson decides otherwise.

  3. Once you have completed and had all forms signed, send it and all other required documents to elections@wsscc.org. Please note that you have to complete and submit all the pages of the form by the deadline, in order for your nomination to be considered.  Any late or incomplete nominations may result in the nominee being disqualified. You will receive an email confirming the receipt of your nomination form. If you do not receive this email, please resend your form and supporting documentation.

Can I nominate someone else?

You can nominate a member from one of the contested regions (click here for the list of eligible members for the Global seat) by emailing their name to elections@wsscc.org. WSSCC will subsequently contact them, to let them know that they have received support to stand as a nominee.

What happens afterwards?

  1. Following the nomination process, members from the contested regions will receive an email, inviting them to vote for the nominees running for their regional seat. Please note that only members residing in countries in the contested regions are eligible to vote. All members who are eligible get one vote.  A designated representative can cast a vote on behalf of an organizational member but may not thereafter vote as an individual member.
  2. Nominees (only) may use the WSSCC Members’ Community portal to promote their campaign. Instructions on how to do so can be found under “useful resources”.

The contested region contains Anglophone and Francophone countries. We therefore recommend that you communicate with your fellow members in both languages, if possible.
