Election of ALTO Board members 2018

Dear ALTO members

The ALTO Annual General Meeting is held on 4th November 2018 in Berlin, and this year an Election of ALTO officers is due to take place during the meeting.

Juan Manuel Elizalde (Board member representing associations on the Board) is coming to the end of his second three-year term since being elected in October 2012. He has confirmed his intention to run at the election again, putting himself forward as a candidate; however his position on the Board is open for election.

Jonathan Quinn (Board member representing schools on the Board) was elected for a three-year period in November 2015. He is also putting himself forward for re-election this year, nevertheless his position on the Board is open for election.

According to the Constitution at least two members of the Board must be from language travel organisations that primarily engage in business as agents, at least two members must be from either language schools or from language course providers, one member must be from a national association or accrediting agency, and one member from either of the previously mentioned categories (other).

To the extent possible, the Executive Board shall reflect the linguistic and geographical diversity of the membership. The 2018 Election will take place at the AGM Berlin in the following two categories:

  • Association x 1
  • School x 1

All members of the ALTO Executive Board shall be elected by the Full and Associate Non-Trading Members of ALTO.

The ALTO Board would now like to invite highly engaged members to submit their Candidacy form by 10th October 2018, see right rail. All ALTO members will receive a list of the Candidates together with their short bio three weeks prior to the AGM.

All Candidacies must be supported by 2 existing ALTO members, who can submit their Nomination form online as well, see right rail.
