The Executive Board is made up of seven representatives of Institutional Members from seven different States, elected by secret voting at meetings of the Association, for a period of 3 years. Representatives of those two member-countries which are not members of the Executive Board (generally, if the given election management body does not decide it otherwise, this representative might be the president of the given election management body), but are ready to organize a conference and/or a meeting of the General Assembly, become the members of the Executive Board for that year, as provided by a resolution of the General Assembly.
Board members elect a President from amongst themselves by an open vote. His mandate lasts for one year, and he is usually the representative of that country’s election management body that organizes the following annual conference of ACEEEO. In case a member of the Executive Board does not hold a position at a national election institute any more, his or her membership is terminated in the Executive Board.
The Secretary General of the Association participates in all activities of the Board as a non-voting member. Board members usually meet twice a year to discuss project activities and conduct other business. At the discretion of the Board, other experts or Association members are often invited to these important meetings.
