About CESS Elections
Every year, the Central Eurasian Studies Society holds elections for Board Member seats and the Presidency. CESS members play a role in the leadership of the Society by nominating candidates, standing as candidates, and voting in elections. The elections fill the position of President-Elect as well as two Board Members. All Board members hold their roles for three years.
The President-Elect is a three-year role which cycles through the positions of President-Elect (year 1), President (year 2) and Past-President (year 3). Thus, at any one time, each role is filled and these persons comprise the Society’s Executive Committee. In addition to the three president roles, the CESS Board consists of six Board Members. Two new Board Members are elected each year and, at the same time, two complete their terms. Board members take up their positions at the Annual Conference that is held after the elections.
