SANCOLD management commitee

Elections are held every year to elect members to the Management Committee to fill vacant posts.  A system of staggered terms of office has been introduced to ensure continuity.

The first elections were held during the SANCOLD Annual Event in early November 2009 and thereafter elections have been held via e-mail to ensure a greater degree of participation.

The SANCOLD Management Committee (MC) for 2017 consists of the persons given below.  Their term of office is also indicated.

Notes:

The term of office is defined from the year following the November elections in the previous year.
Exco Members will be indicated thus (*).

No election was held at the end of 2015 and the same Management Committee remained for a further year in 2016 (the ICOLD 2016 event that was held in Johannesburg).  All Terms of Office were thus extended by one year to ensure continuity.  Exceptions to this were for the YEF Chairperson who has a different cycle and for co-optees who are co-opted for the year in question.  Elections were held in November 2016.

YEF still to hold an election during 2017.
SAICE still to confirm representation.
Co-optees was confirmed by the Management Committee on 27/02/2017.
