Nominee Details



Designated and Undesignated Seats
A "Designated" seat candidate ("Early Career Publisher" and "Non EU/US") may choose to simultaneously stand for election as an "Undesignated" candidate.

A candidate who chooses to stand for both an "Undesignated" and a "Designated" seat must be nominated and seconded for each seat separately.

The same individual(s) who has nominated and/or seconded an individual's candidacy for a "Designated" seat may also nominate and/or second that individual's candidacy for an "Undesignated" seat.


Nomination, Approval, and Seconding Procedures
If you are employed by an STM publishing member company (regular) you can be nominated by another person who is employed by an STM publishing member company or nominate yourself. In either case, the nominee is responsible to secure a second for his/her nomination from another individual who is also employed by an STM publishing member company.

The candidate must receive approval for his/her candidacy from Head of House (the most senior executive of the publishing enterprise,) as recognized by STM before being put on the ballot.
