Dear Indian Chapter members,


According to the rules for the elections of Chairs of WGs/Chapters “The mandate of Chairs is for a two-year term”. Since the mandate of the current Chair – Praveen Kumar - ended on 02/06/2019, elections need to be convened.

We therefore invite any member of the Indian Chapter who is willing to devote the necessary time and enthusiasm to take over the management of this Chapter, to volunteer as candidate for the following positions:


  • Chair of the Indian Chapter – Person responsible for the overall management of the Chapter
  • Vice Chair of the Indian Chapter – He/she will act as an Interim Chair, in case the current Chair cannot fulfil his/her role


These are not honorary positions but require a real contribution of voluntary time and effort to organise the Chapter’s activities. Members are now invited to also apply for the Vice-Chair position to avoid having a gap on the Chair position, in case the Chair is not available.

Any volunteer should send an e-mail to contact@mariecuriealumni.eu by midnight, Friday 21st June 2019 CET. Please clearly state on your e-mail if you are applying for the Chair or Vice-Chair position.

If there is only one candidate for each position, no election will be necessary, and the ExCom will declare this candidate the new Chair and new Vice-Chair.

If there are two or more candidates, an on-line poll will be organised to allow Indian Chapter members to elect their new Chair and Vice Chair amongst these volunteers.

Best regards,

The MCAA Team
