Dear Danish Chapter members,
We invite any member of the Danish Chapter as of the date of this Call who is willing to devote the necessary time and enthusiasm to take over the management of this Chapter, to volunteer as a candidate for the following position:

This position is not merely honorary but requires a real contribution of time and effort to organise the Chapter activities. The Chair should also engage other Chapter members to get involved in the management and planning of the Chapter. Responsibilities include:
- Annual Plan of Activities

- External representation of MCAA in the Chapter related activities
- Organisation of two Chapter meetings per year
- Member engagement

One person cannot be the Chair / Vice-chair of more than one Chapter or Working-Group simultaneously. If a current Chair of either runs for this position and wins, they must resign their current Chair position.
As per the MCAA statutes, the Chair of a Chapter is an ex-officio (i.e., non-voting) member of the MCAA Board. The Chair can take part online in all MCAA Board meetings and will be invited to join the MCAA Board meeting in conjunction with the MCAA General Assembly each year.
Any volunteer should send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15th of August 2021, 23:59 CEST, stating the intentions to run with a short manifesto (up to 200 words). Once the nominations are validated by the ExCom, list of the candidate(s) and an online poll will be organised to allow respective Chapter members to elect their new Chair amongst these volunteers. If there is a single valid nomination, no election will be necessary.
Once elected, the chair is expected to serve for two years, i.e. until August 2023.
If there are no candidates by the above deadline, the MCAA Executive Committee reserves the right to close the Chapter. The decision of MCAA Executive committee will be final.
