As we arrive to conclusions of this year’s elections it may be valuable to briefly remind everyone of the process. The composition of the five members of the Nominations Committee
changes every year. In order to keep with the "institutional memory" the Chairmanship of this Committee is automatically transferred to the immediate past President of the WHS.
