Following a review of the bylaws regarding the election process, the deadline for applications for the two available EC positions has been removed.

While the SESAM Annual General Meeting (AGM) must take place virtually, the EC decided that it was important to remain true to the tradition of the society and the current bylaws, which allows applications up to the commencement of the AGM.

Please be aware that if you would like to apply for either of the two positions, Vice President or President Elect, and would like to share a video with the membership prior to the meeting then this should be supplied at least 24 hours before the AGM to allow this to be placed on the society website. Videos should not be longer than 3 minutes and will be shared as soon as possible following submission.

In order to manage the AGM time effectively, voters will be expected to access your election video message on the SESAM website prior to the AGM.

In line with the current bylaws, it is within any member's rights to announce their candidature at the AGM meeting, but understandably they will not have the opportunity to share video prior to AGM.

Invitations to the SESAM Annual General Meeting, which will take place on Zoom on 11 May at 1700 BST/1800 CEST, will be sent to all current individual members of the society. 

If you wish to renew your membership in order to take part in the meeting, this should be done at least 24 hours before the meeting commences to ensure that you have access to the meeting.

The voting will take place during the meeting via a zoom poll.
