Individual members in Germany are invited to participate in elections for their country coordinators. The Steering Committee has decided to have coordinators in proximity of where members live. Therefore, there will be a team of four coordinators. Each of those coordinators is responsible for members in a specific part of Germany. There will be one coordinator in the North, one in the Middle, one in the East and one for South of Germany.
Germany North: Bremen, Hamburg, Lower-Saxony, Schleswig-Holstein;
Germany Middle: Hesse, North Rhine–Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarland, Thuringia;
Germany East: Berlin, Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt;
Germany South: Baden-Wurttemberg, Bavaria;
By 24 October, paid-up members in Germany will receive in their e-mail inbox one online ballot. The ballot will feature candidates from all four regions. The name of every candidate will be preceded by the name of the region for which they choose to run. Members can choose one candidate.
Please be aware of the following deadlines related to the elections for individual members living in Germany:
Monday 15 October: Deadline nominations

Wednesday 24 October: Online election opens. Members will receive a ballot in their e-mail inbox, after which they will have one week to vote.
