Every even year, SISC members vote for a President and two new Ordinary Members of the Council.
The winner of the elections for President serve in the Council for 6 years: as President-Elect in the first two years, as President in the next two years, and as Past-President in the last two years.
The two new Ordinary Members of the Council serve for four years.
The nominations are handled by a Nominating Committee consisting of three members appointed by the President.
The Nominating Committee proposes to the General Assembly two names of individual members in good standing for the position of President and four names of individual members in good standing for the position of elected members of the Council. Additionally, any group of at least one fourth of the members may nominate candidates who are then added to the proposals of the Nominating Committee. The candidates with the highest number of votes are elected for the respective positions.
