  • One vote per institution present at RAG conference (the committee will look into postal voting, transferable voting or online for RAG conference 2015).
  • Committee members will be elected using the alternative voting method. With all candidates standing for one position. The six candidates with the most votes will be elected to the committee. The committee will decide the chair amongst themselves.
  • Only one person from each institution can be on the committee, however more than one person from an institution can run in the election. The person with the most votes is eligible to be on the committee.
