The Global Steering Committee (GSC) is delegated by members to govern SuSanA 2.0 on their behalf during the periods between triennial elections (every three year). As such, it is the principal decision-making body and governance vehicle during this period. It is responsible and accountable to members, primarily through the Annual Assembly, for ensuring sound strategic and financial functioning of SuSanA 2.0.

Voting will be online and ONLY for members that are registered. To cater for all different time zones the election will have 4 voting days. During these days members will be able to vote for candidates from their voting region, which is determined by their registration country after logging into their SuSanA account. One member has only one vote. The login assures that only registered SuSanA members are able to vote. You can login here or register as a new member here.
You can find more information on the candidates for 2022 here.
Every SuSanA member can be suggested to the Interim Steering Committee as a candidate for the Global Steering Committee. The ISC can also approach possible candidates. Further the ISC makes the final decision on who will be nominated as a candidate based on their eligibility while also taking the representation of gender, region, sector into consideration.
Please reach out to email@example.com if you have any suggestions regarding possible candidates for the upcoming election of the GSC. Please find the detailed ToR for GSC members here: The Role of SuSanA´s Global Steering Committee Members (ToR) - Resources • SuSanA
The open call for candidates 2022 is closed.
The positions of the GSC are voluntary and unpaid and each GSC member is expected to commit 3 to 4 hours per month.
Diversities regarding gender, region and sector are taken into account during the GSC election. Every region of the world has the same number of regional representatives, and candidates are nominated from all sectors in WASH. Eligible female members are encouraged to participate in the election for GSC.
The information about candidates, including name, region, a brief biography and a photo, will be collected by the secretariat and then promoted to the SuSanA community through susana.org website, SuSanA forum, SuSanA’s social medias and emails.
The seven Voting Regions defined for the GSC election 2022 are:
The voting regions are set as mentioned above only for the GSC Election 2022 , covering all regions on the globe. The region the voters can vote in will be assigned based on the country entered during the registration process.
The Regional Chapters are established to better connect SuSanA to the regions with their local needs and to make SuSanA's knowledge products and services more accessible “on the ground”. Members can benefit by using SuSanA's regional chapters as a sounding board for issues related to their country or region. The chapters can also help to connect and exchange with other organisations from the region. Current regional chapters are:
Voting is anonymous, which means SuSanA only knows if someone has voted, but not who voted for whom. The voting is not linked to your personal data.
Only registered members can vote. This helps to avoid multiple voting by one person. For voting, SuSanA will retrieve your registered country and select your voting region accordingly. This happens automatically. However, if necessary, the voting regions can be changed before the election via the voting page.
