Call for nominations for the roles of EONS President-Elect and 1 EONS Board member

We would like to inform you that our former President Andreas Charalambous (Cyprus) has been elected as President-Elect of The European Cancer Organisation, with effect from 1 January 2021.

Consequently, to assure the smooth transition of leadership and according to the EONS Constitution,  Johan De Munter (Belgium), EONS President-Elect, has now taken over the position of EONS President.

As a result, EONS is launching a call for nominations for candidates to be elected as EONS President-Elect (ideally from outside Cyprus and Belgium).

In addition, we regret to say that one EONS Executive Board member has stepped down for personal reasons, so we are also calling for a nomination for an EONS Board member

EONS full members (EONS individual members and  members of an EONS National Oncology Nursing Society) are herewith cordially invited to provide nominations for both roles.

Please find in the further information section of this page the  outline of  the election process, the nomination form and the role descriptions.  The completed nomination form should be emailed to the Secretariat at:  The deadline for the receipt of fully completed, signed nomination forms by the EONS Secretariat is Friday 15 January 2021, 12.00 CET, noon.  

The final list of nominees will be forwarded to the membership via email and the EONS website on Monday 18 January 2021 and the call for voting will then be open.

Deadline for voting will be Thursday 28 January at 12.00 noon CET  and the election result will be announced by email to the membership on Monday  1st February 2021.

The election result will be confirmed during an extraordinary online General meeting  on Tuesday 16 February  (TBC). Once confirmed, the President-Elect and the Executive Board member will immediately take up post for their term of office until September 2023.  

We look forward to receiving many nominations!
