What is the procedure?

An election committee consisting of two Board members and the management of the administering body will invite the candidates they consider suitable on the basis of their CVs and the other documents for an interview. A list of eligible parties will be drawn up if the interviews lead to the election committee feeling that there is more than one suitable candidate. An election will subsequently be held in March 2021. All beneficiaries will be sent a call to vote.
As soon as the qualified – and possibly chosen – candidates are known they will be appointed.
