Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Global Steering Committee Elections

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


Find out more about the GSC here.

Voting will be online and ONLY for members that are registered. To cater for all different time zones the election will have 2-3 voting days. During these days members will be able to vote 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.

Candidates can be suggested to the Interim Steering Committee by Core Group members and the SuSanA secretariat. The ISC can also approach possible candidates. Further the Interim Steering Committee makes the final decision on who will be nominated as a candidate. Please reach out to 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

GSC members are not paid for this position, and they achieve the responsibilities on voluntary basis.

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 website, SuSanA forum, SuSanA’s social medias and emails.

The seven Voting Regions defined for the GSC election 2022 are: Africa, Europe, Latinoamérica, North America, South Asia, (South) East Asia & Pacific, WANA (West Asia and North Africa).

For the GSC Election 2022 the voting regions were set as mentioned above. The region the voters can vote in will be assigned based on the country entered during the registration process.

The vote will be anonymous, meaning SuSanA will only know if someone has voted but SuSanA will not have the information who voted for whom.
