30. When are the SEC Panel and Sub-Committee elections held?

The SEC Panel and each of its Sub-Committees have annual elections staggered across the year. An interim election is also arranged for the SEC Panel should any members leave the Panel within a term.

The term of office for members is set at 24 months to assist with maintaining knowledge within the Sub-Committee. This means an annual election will be held for half of the membership of each Sub-Committee each year.

If a new member joins a Sub-Committee after the date of the annual election, their term of office will be aligned with the nearest upcoming annual review.

If you are interested in fulfilling a vacancy outside of this period, simply email SECAS@gemserv.com, expressing your interest in the chosen Panel / Sub-Committee and provide a short summary of your experience within the industry. The meeting secretary will then share this information with the applicable Panel / Sub-Committee Chair and will contact you to provide a nomination form.
