At the business meeting in conjunction with the ECPR General Conference candidates for the new steering committee will have the possibility to present him- or herself. The Business Meeting will take place Friday 24 August from 13:00-14:00, in Building VMP 8, Room 105. Please note that each candidate can only use up to three minutes, since the meeting also covers other business. Alas, the SG has not funds, so please bring your own lunch to the Business Meeting. We will now notify the ECPR Central Services about the nominees and ask for the electronic ballot to be opened after the General Conference.
