Call for Nominations for the Election of the President of the Regional Science Association International 2017-2018

 

Dear Members of the Regional Science Association International

 

President of RSAI, Professor Jacques Poot from PRSCO, has had to resign as president of our association due to a serious illness of his wife. Our feelings, thoughts, and prayers are with Professor Jacques Poot and his family with the strong hope that his wife will recover soon.

 

According to Article V, section 7d of the Constitution, in case of resignation of the president “the Immediate Past President shall serve as Acting President during the first year of the presidential term and the Vice-President and President-Elect shall succeed to the Presidency during the second year of the uncompleted term”. Nevertheless, since this is still very early in the presidential cycle of PRSCO, and based on a proposal made by RSAI Acting President Andrés Rodriguez-Pose, the RSAI Council approved on-line a proposal of a Nomination Committee to nominate candidates for the election by the RSAI Council of a RSAI president coming from PRSCO area. The Nomination Committee composed by Mark Partridge (Chair), Yoshiro Higano, John Madden and Neil Reid proposed the Executive Director to launch this Call for Nominations of Candidates for the Election on-line by the RSAI Council of the President of the Regional Science Association International 2017-2018.

 

The RSAI members from the PRSCO area who want to be nominated as candidate for the President of the Regional Science Association International should send to rsai@apdr.pt until the April the 19th the following elements:

 

  • A two-page CV and a Picture;
  • A two-page statement on the motives in support of the candidacy and on the future strategy for the RSAI.

 

The Nomination Committee will then nominate the candidates to be voted on-line by the Members of the Council. The results will be diffused through RSAI News and in RSAI webpage.

 

Best regards

Tomaz Ponce Dentinho

Executive Director of the Regional Science Association International
