To run for election, candidates must be a Brussels-based trainee (Luxembourg trainees have their own Trainees' Committee) and a T-card holder. Candidates can stand for a maximum of two positions. Trainees nominate themselves for election, have the opportunity to campaign and then present themselves on election night. Nominations and votes are submitted online.
In case there are no candidates for a position, another candidate who received a high number of votes, but was not elected may be proposed. For reasons of transparency, you cannot be both a Coordinator of a Society and a member of the Trainees' Committee.
Please check with your supervisor before standing for the Trainees' Committee to be sure you have enough time to work for the Trainees' Committee besides your traineeship unit.
At the beginning of each traineeship session, trainees elect amongst themselves the Trainees' Committee and its auditors. Information regarding the positions will be shared on the run-up to the elections. The Liaison Committee operating in the first month of the traineeship will arrange the elections and brief the newly elected Trainees' Committee.
The roles in the Trainees' Committee are:
Social Events Coordinator
In addition, three auditors will be elected to oversee the Trainees' Committee.
