GEO Board of Directors Election

The 2017 Board of Directors Election is now closed. The 2017-2018 Board of Directors will be announced in early July.

GEO's Board of Directors is responsible for the oversight and governance of GEO as well as ensuring that the necessary resources are in place to provide for the longevity of the organization. The Board consists solely of volunteers and is open to representatives from all membership constituencies (corporate issuers, service providers, advisors, academia and government representatives). GEO is fortunate that our board members are some of the most accomplished professionals in the global employee share plan and executive compensation communities. Any member interested in becoming a Board Member is eligible and encouraged to run. However, no more than two (2) elected individuals on the Board of Directors can represent the same organization as long as these individuals have their primary workplace in different continents at the time of their election.

Nominations for the GEO Board
The nomination window is open 30 days before elections. You are required to nominate yourself for a Board position. You will need to send GEO a photo of yourself, a short statement describing why you want to be on the GEO Board (which will be displayed on the voting ballot) and a current biography. As a GEO Board member, you are required to commit to attend two in-person Board meetings, held in either the U.S. or Europe. If you cannot commit to the time and expense associated with this travel, please notify us. We have many other volunteer positions available that may suit your circumstances better.

Elections for the GEO Board
All GEO members of record on the date before elections open are eligible to vote using this electronic ballot. Based upon the total vote count, GEO’s Board of Directors will designate the new directors for terms between one and four years each. Elected directors will assume their positions on 1 July 2017.

In accordance with the bylaws of the Global Equity Organization, elections are governed by the following rules:

  • The maximum number of voters from any single firm is limited to 30. Votes cast by employees of a single firm beyond the first thirty employees will not be counted.

  • Each GEO member will be allowed one vote per number of open positions in an election period. (You cannot place multiple votes for one candidate)

  • All members who wish to vote in this election will need their GEO username and password (your email address is typically your username). This information will be used to verify your identity as well as the fact that you are currently an active member of GEO. This information will also preclude anyone from submitting more than one ballot. You must be a member of GEO on 31 May 2017 by 5:00pm PT in order to place your votes.
