RDA TAB Election 2017 - update

01 August 2017

As a result of a decision made at the last Council meeting in July 2017, the 2017 election to TAB will elect 5 members to replace the 4 who are rotating off after their 3 year terms are complete. The total number of TAB members will therefore increase to 13 after this year’s TAB Election. This process will also be followed in 2018 and 2019 to expand the total TAB size to 15. 

To accommodate the change in numbers, the regional balancing criterion will be changed as follows:

  • Starting with the TAB Election in 2017, the maximum number of TAB members per region (Europe and Africa, Americas, Asia and Oceania) will increase from 5 to 6.
  • Starting with the TAB election in 2019, the minimum number of TAB members per region (Europe and Africa, Americas, Asia and Oceania) will increase from 2 to 3.

The TAB Election Process Document is currently being updated with this information.
