ISPE International Board of Directors Election Process

The ISPE International Board of Directors 2017 Election will open in July and ballots will be emailed to all ISPE Members eligible to vote on 26 July. Members with no email on file or whose email generated an error will receive a postcard with ballot instructions.

Candidates were selected by the Nominating Committee and then approved by the Board of Directors as required in ISPE’s bylaws.

Members will be eligible to vote for one person for each Officer position and five people for the Director positions. You can vote for a candidate listed, write in for any other ISPE Member, or a combination of these two options.

Directors are elected to a two-year term and can serve up to two terms consecutively. The officer positions on the ballot are Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary. The current Chair automatically becomes Past Chair in the next year and the President serves as a non-voting ex-officio member. Terms for officers are one year and the Secretary is the first officer position in the typical officer succession. Each candidate for secretary is typically making a five-year commitment to serve in the roles of Secretary through Past Chair.

In 2015, the Board undertook a strategic planning process for years 2016 - 2019. We encourage you to review the ISPE Strategic Plan Summary ( 3 MB)  to familiarize yourself with the organization’s strategy. Be sure to consider this when you cast your ballot.

All voting must be completed no later than 11:59 PM Eastern Daylight Time, Wednesday, 13 September 2017.

Candidate Nomination and Selection Process

Below are the steps taken for selecting candidates to be on the ballot:

  • Each year, the global membership of ISPE are asked to provide the names of potential candidates to the ISPE Nominating Committee. Candidates are proposed on the basis of a number of considerations communicated in the call for nominations including: strategic thinking, leadership skills, “business sense,” knowledge of the global pharma / biopharma industry, and the ability to commit the time and resources required to actively participate on the Board.
  • The Nominating Committee proposes a list of potential candidates for the vacancies on the Executive Committee and the International Board of Directors. The Board approves this list before the election.
  • Approved candidates are asked to confirm their willingness to stand for the election and to demonstrate that they have the support of their employer to serve.
  • Following the receipt of this information, the balloting process is arranged using an independent outside body, Intelliscan, Inc.

Intelliscan, Inc. conducts the entire election process and reports the results to the International Board of Directors.
