The Executive Board creates an ad hoc Nominations Committee (NC) and appoints the Chair. This occurs every third year with the Committee being appointed two years prior to the next Council meeting. It is the responsibility of the NC to invite, receive and process nominations for the next Executive Board. To do so, the NC solicits suggestions for candidates for each position on the Executive Board (except the Past-President and Corporate Representative), from Full Members of the IFCC and from key individuals within the management structure of the IFCC.

The NC then recommends a slate of candidates consisting of one or more persons for each vacancy. Also, the candidates must be nominated by the Association of the country where the candidate works, and not by another Association of which they are a member.

The Nominations Committee will conduct this activity independent of the current Executive Board (whose members may be seeking re-election). Also, it will establish an appropriate deadline by which all nominations must be received. The NC does not function as a "Search Committee" and has no long-term role in "human resource development" or "succession planning".

The election for the new EB will be conducted by electronic ballot and the result will be announced at the meeting of Council prior to each IFCC WorldLab meeting.
