Eight members announced their candidacy, or accepted nominations by other members, before the deadline (August 31, 2015). According to the constitution of the CEA the minimum number of directors is 5 and the maximum number is 11. If there were more than 11 candidates we would have had to conduct a ballot to elect 11 of them. Since there were fewer than 11, a ballot was not necessary. The directors for 2014–2015 that know them believe that each one of them is fit to be a director and capable of wisely leading the association during the current two-year term.
