Deadline: 20 September 2020

Member Organisations are invited to submit nominations for candidates to the Board of IGLYO before 20 September 2020 by completing the form below. The list of candidates along with the nomination forms will be circulated to Member Organisations according to the regulations of the statutes.

Please note that this form may be used to nominate only one person to run for election to the IGLYO Board. The information requested will be used as part of the procedures related to the election of the board members and this information will be circulated to Member Organisations and the delegates. All sections in this form must be filled out.*

*If you have specific access requirements and you require an alternative application and submission format, please contact us at office@iglyo.com.  

Please note that official representative of the nominating Member Organisation must complete question 2 of this form.

For a nomination to be valid, the candidate must fit the following criteria:

• Be between 18 and 30 years old at the time of election (25 September 2020)
• Be officially nominated by a Member Organisation of IGLYO (Important: Candidates cannot be nominated by member organisations based in Germany, Ukraine or Georgia) as according to IGLYO's current statutes no 2 board members may represent organisations based in the same country - Statutes art. 17).
• Provide all the required information in this form

Additionally to the criteria above, we urge candidates to consider other requirements that being part of IGLYO's Executive Board entails:
• Ability to provide around 10 hours of work per week on average, mainly responding promptly to a high volume of emails and working on specific projects (event organising, statement drafting, fundraising, online meetings)
• Ability to work in English
• Ability to travel once every two months on average (all travel and subsistence costs will be covered)
• Ability to work remotely as most of the work will be carried out online.
• Previous experience or engagement with IGLYO.
 

IGLYO also strongly encourages member organisations to think about the diversity of the LGBTQI community when selecting delegates and/or candidates. We particularly encourage participation and applications from women, non-binary and/or transgender, and intersex people, LGBTQI persons of colour, persons from ethnic minorities and indigenous people, persons with disabilities and persons from lower socioeconomic backgrounds.

We want to make this application as accessible as possible so if you would like us to make any arrangements in this respect let us know.
