CIES members should have received an email ballot via ElectionBuddy. Some institutions may block the hosting site or send messages from ElectionBuddy to your junk folder. If you did not receive a ballot and would like to cast your vote, please contact the CIES OED at email@example.com. All ballots must be submitted by Friday, January 18, 2019, 11:59pm EST.
(2) CIES GUIDING PRINCIPLES ON TAKING A PUBLIC STANCE
In response to the announced intention of US withdrawal from UNESCO in 2019, the CIES Board of Directors has approved a formal statement to be issued publicly. Further, the BoD recognizes the importance of CIES becoming more active in social and political issues and events that concern its members. It has, to that end, convened an Ad-hoc Committee on Social and Policy Engagement to structure and begin these activities. A first critical step has been to develop a statement of guiding principles for these efforts, and the Committee is now seeking input from CIES members on a draft statement. Via your ElectionBuddy ballot, please read the draft statement and offer any feedback in response. The Committee will then review all comments and revise the draft as needed before sending it to the BoD for final approval. Once approved, all future public statements or activities will be subject to its principles.
