Nomination for openEHR Foundation Management Board Positions

openEHR News | June 5, 2018, 6 p.m.

openEHR Management Board Election June 2018 

As agreed with the openEHR Board of Governors, two of the existing openEHR Management Board positions are now up for election with voting open to all paid Individual and Industry Partner members.

The call for nominations is for two Management Board positions; one to represent Individual Members, one to represent Industry Partners.

The Board of Governors and Management Board would like to warmly thank the two current Board members who are stepping down, Dr Rong Chen (Industry Partners) and Dr Koray Atalag (Individual Members), for their very significant contributions to the Board over the last 2 years, and longstanding support for openEHR. 

The other two Management Board positions, currently held by Dr Ian McNicoll (Individual members) and Tomaž Gornik (Industry Partners) will come up for election at the end of 2018 to allow some continuity as we transition to the new Community Interest Company (CiC). This process is now well under way and expected to be complete during Q3-4 of 2018. 

Membership - if you are not currently a paid-up member and wish to vote, you will need to ensure that your current membership is paid or that you move to Individual membership by upgrading your membership level.  If a non-member would like to vote we invite you join us HERE, The cost is only €15.00 for Individual Membership, which entitles you to vote and helps support the work of the Foundation particularly the Specification groups and clinical modellers.

Call for nominations for 2 elected Management Board positions will run from 5 June 2018 to 22 June 2018 [EXTENDED TO 30 JUNE] 

Nominations can be made here

Election period will now commence on 1 July and further information to be provided.

Each registered Individual Member will be asked to vote for up to two candidates who have nominated to represent Individual Members, expressing a first and second preference. 

Each registered Industry Member (company) will be asked to vote for up to two candidates who have nominated to represent Industry Members, expressing a first and second preference.

After the election is closed, the votes will be counted by three members of the current Board of Governors and a tally agreed.  In the event of a tie (and only in the event of a tie) the second preferences of each voter will be taken into account. In the very unlikely event that the election is still tied, the Board of Governors will have a casting vote. 

The result will be communicated to registered members by the end July 2018.
