At our next seminar in May in Liège, Belgium, several positions on the RaAM Executive Committee (EC) will be up for election.

Results will be announced at the AGM on 16 May, 2019, and published online as soon as possible afterwards.

We would like to encourage you to think about whether you might like to be a candidate for one of the following positions:

Brief descriptions of the responsibilities involved can be found by clicking on the positions above. If you have questions about the positions, feel free to send an inquiry to elections@raam.org.uk.

Why should you stand for election? It is important that RaAM is run by its members and we need people to be willing to give their time and energy to making sure RaAM continues to develop as an international support for metaphor research and training. So, if you are interested in helping, please stand!

How do you go about standing? If you want to stand for one of the posts available, please fill in the 2019 Elections candidacy form. You will need to be nominated and seconded by colleagues who are members of RaAM at the time of nomination. Candidates will also need to be members of RaAM at the time of voting (i.e. between May 1st and May 16th, 2019). Nominators and seconders should make certain in advance that candidates agree to being proposed.

The deadline for applications is April 30th, 2019, 11.59PM (CET).

Candidates & the elections All candidates and their statements will be presented on a special 'Candidates' page on the RaAM website.
