The Advisory Board advises, guides and supports the Board of Management in developing and furthering the aim and objectives of the Society by advising the Board of Management on the direction and strategy of the Society, and by generating and providing feedback on particular proposals for development.
The Advisory Board consists of up to twenty-seven members of the Society. The Advisory Board is elected democratically by the members of the Society at the Annual General Meeting that takes place every two years during the ICED conferences. The normal term of an Advisory Board member is six years with the opportunity for one further term.
The Advisory Board is managed by a Chair, who is responsible for organising the annual meeting of the Advisory Board. The Chair is elected by the members of the Advisory Board.
Each nomination for the Advisory Board must be supported by no less than 5 proposals from members before they can stand for election. The normal term of office for the Advisory Board is six years with the opportunity for one further term. The office of Chair of the Advisory Board is held for 2 years with the opportunity for one additional term of 2 years. The Chair of the Advisory Board is agreed by the members of the Advisory Board, in close communication with the Board of Management.
To support the Chair of the Advisory Board with coordination, and to cover for the Chair, in any eventuality of absence or longer inability to carry out the duties of Chair, a Vice-Chair of the Advisory Board is also appointed, in a similar manner to that of the Chair.
