Call for candidatures - RSAI President elect

Dear Members of the Regional Science Association International, 

according to the RSAI Constitution, each first year of term of the RSAI President, the Association faces the pleasant task of electing the Incoming President, who will in 2022 take on the position of President Elect, and work along with Prof. Eduardo Haddad, current RSAI President, to gradually move on to the position of President in 2023. Here is an excerpt of the rules of the Association for managing this important step:

Nomination committee. The RSAI Council has appointed a dedicated nomination committee, that following the rule of the RSAI Constitution is made up of the RSAI President (Eduardo Haddad), the RSAI Immediate Past-President (Mark Partridge), four members of the RSAI Council (one each from among the council members who are appointees of the four superregional organizations: Liz Mack for NARSC, André Torre for ERSA, Brian Kim for PRSCO, and Carlos Azzoni for LARSA), and two members of the Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC) recommended by the LRPC itself (Roberta Capello and Andrés Rodrigues-Pose).

Criteria of the nominees. The nominees should satisfy the following criteria: a) financial resources sufficient to cover travel costs to perform RSAI duties; b) support from candidate’s institution including relaxation of duties to enable President to travel as needed to execute RSAI business; c) RSAI Council experience (Council member experience) and/or other service to the regional science community (e.g., supra-regional and/or other sections, editor or one of the regional science journals, etc.).

Election procedure. The President Elect nomination committee shall [...] make a recommendation to Council at the second Council meeting of this same year . Upon receiving this recommendation, Council will select a nominee. The President‐Elect and Vice‐President shall start his/her appointment at the start of the next calendar year (i.e. the second year of the current President’s term).
