Following a thorough review of all submissions this past summer, the UICC Nominating Committee shortlisted a group of outstanding candidates with a healthy mix of skillsets, geography, gender and cancer control backgrounds. The shortlist comprises 22 candidates for the 14 available Board of Director roles and two candidates for the President-elect position.
“It is truly great to see that so many outstanding experts want to make a difference for cancer control on UICC's Board”, says HRH Princess Dina Mired, UICC President. “This certainly speaks for the relevance and reputation of our organisation and is a promising sign for UICC's future.”
The elections will take place tomorrow, Tuesday 6th October, at the UICC General Assembly, which is being held virtually for the first time ever, allowing all members to join from anywhere in the world.
“We would like to thank everyone who has accepted to run for the elections for their availability, interest and motivation to help us support the cancer community in the best possible way”, said Dr Cary Adams, CEO, UICC.
 UICC Board of Directors is composed of 16 voting members elected by the General Assembly, including the President and the President-Elect.
 The Nominating Committee consists of the President-Elect, the President, the Immediate Past-President and two Board members appointed by the Board.
 UICC General Assembly is the supreme governing body of UICC. It is attended by all UICC members and it is convened every two years.
