Dear Spain-Portugal 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 – Manuel Gomez-Florit – will end on 16/06/2019, elections need to be convened.

We therefore invite any member of the Spain-Portugal 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 Spain-Portugal Chapter – Person responsible for the overall management of the Chapter
  • Vice Chair of the Spain-Portugal 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 Spain-Portugal Chapter members to elect their new Chair and Vice Chair amongst these volunteers.

Details concerning Chapter management are available at: https://www.mariecuriealumni.eu/chapter-guidelines


Best regards,

The MCAA Team
