the e-Assessment Association

Elections 2022

The e-Assessment Association is a not-for-profit membership organisation governed voluntarily by a Board made up of both Corporate and Ordinary Members.

In September we will be holding our online election for eAA Board Members as previous Board Members stand down by rotation.

This year we have three positions available for Ordinary Members and two positions available for Corporate Members.

We are now inviting all eAA members to submit their nomination in advance of the election process which opens in mid September.

Who can stand as a Board member?

Any existing member of the e-Assessment Association can be nominated (by themselves or someone else) to stand in these elections.

All members are welcome to put themselves forward. This year we are particularly keen to encourage educational practitioners to join the board, especially from schools, colleges and training providers, where there has been such change recently in the push to adopt digital technologies to support assessment.

What you need to do

To nominate yourself or another eAA member for election, please email your nomination to [email protected] no later than Tuesday 13th September 5pm (BST) including the following:

  • 200 word maximum mini-biography to include a short summary of the relevant experience of the person nominated as well as reasons why they want to join the eAA Board. This mini bio is really important as it helps members decide who to vote for in the election.
  • Head shot of nominated individual (ideally JPEG format).

Both the short bio and headshot will appear on the eAA website during the election period.

2022 Election Key Dates:

  • Deadline for receipt of nominations: Tuesday 13th September, 5pm (BST)
  • Election period (if there are more nominations than vacancies): Thursday 15th September until Wednesday 28th September, midnight (BST)
  • AGM and announcement of election results: Tuesday 4th October, 11am (BST)

Why join the eAA Board?

With the eAA’s increased visibility during the past year, growing membership and a very successful Awards and International Conference, the influence of members is being seen in assessment systems globally. Being on the eAA Board is a great opportunity to play an active part in the development of the association and the role it plays within the wider market. It isn’t an onerous role, with the key activity focused around four, mostly virtual, board meetings a year, plus related supporting activity between meetings.

If successfully elected, nominees will be committing to a three year term as a member of the eAA Board and will be expected to take an active role in supporting and promoting the association.

Corporate Members of the eAA Board

Corporate Members are drawn from the eAA's sponsors who support the work of the association through financial sponsorship.

The Returning Officer for the 2022 election is Tim Downie, eAA Board member. If you have any queries regarding this election, please email [email protected] and mark your correspondence: FAO Returning Officer.
