WAIPA Steering Committee Elections 2012

Annual Conferences, 14/05/2012

All Regional Directorships, both Vice-Presidencies and the Presidency of WAIPA are subject to renewal at elections to be held in conjunction with the XVII WAIPA Annual World Investment Conference, scheduled for September 17-18, 2012, in Dubai, Unites Arab Emirates.

To nominate a candidate for any post (including incumbent officers), a candidacy letter must be sent to the address below by post-office or courier service by no later than July 19, 2012:

WAIPA – International Environment House II 

9 Chemin de Balexert, 1219 Châtelaine

Geneva, Switzerland

As was the case in the voting of Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 2010, a senior-level representative from each candidate Member – shall be given three minutes to briefly present its candidacy for the regional seat. Similarly, each MEMBER nominated for the Vice-Presidencies and the Presidency, shall be given a three to five minutes to introduce its representative and his/her ideas for the post prior to the vote-taking.

If no Member has presented itself for a particular post by July 19, 2012, then at the discretion of the current directorate, nominations may be taken at [WIC12] to avoid vacant seats during the upcoming term.

We look forward to receiving Candidacy Letters and hope that this courtesy notice will give interested Members ample time to consider nominating themselves for their respective Regional Directorships and qualified representatives for the other offices.

We look forward to seeing as much of our Members as possible at [WIC12].

Message from the President

WAIPA President

Dear WAIPA Members and colleagues,
It is an honour for me to address you as the President of this fine institution. This was a responsibility entrusted upon me, not one I actively sought. It is my hope nonetheless that I shall correspond to your vote of confidence. At ISPAT – Invest In Turkey – we are all appreciative of the support shown by fellow Steering Committee members.
