The Election Committee of IAPS is pleased to announce the results of the IAPS Board 2016 election. Eleven candidates were nominated to stand for election, and all paid up members of IAPS were eligible to vote. Each member could vote for a maximum of 4 candidates.  The following is a true and accurate report of the election:

 

Total number of voting forms received:                                           72

Total number of eligible voting forms:                                              70

Total number of ineligible voting forms:                                             2

 

The number of votes cast for each candidate:

 

candidates votes
Tony CRAIG 51
Henk STAATS 34
Taciano MILFONT 27
Adriana PORTELLA 23
Hulya TURGUT 23
Karin WEISS 22
Nathalie JEAN-BAPTISTE 21
Ellen MATTHIES 21
Sarah PAYNE 19
Linda JORDAN 11
Jennifer SENICK 10

Because two candidates for the fourth position available in the board received an equal number of votes (Adriana Portella and Hulya Turgut), the election committee calculated the total scores of the two ex-aequo candidates, on the basis of the ranking preferences received by each candidate. The results are the following:

Adriana Portella: score 63

Hulya Turgut: score 59

 

Thus, the following 4 candidates are therefore elected to the IAPS Board.

Tony CRAIG

Henk STAATS

Taciano MILFONT

Adriana PORTELLA

 

We wish to thank all of you who participated in the election – candidates, nominators and electors.
