Professional members and staff of the election management bodies (EMBs) need appropriate skills, practice and a commitment to the principles of electoral management such as fairness, impartiality, independence, transparency, accessibility, and professionalism. Staff development for the EMBs may take a number of basic forms, such as customized short-term informal training, the mentoring of staff by senior EMB or another organization’s officials, and also long-term formal training in the form of courses or academic development programmes.
Providing education and training opportunities for election officials is permanently on our Association's agenda.
If at any time we can provide you with information or assistance regarding education & training, please feel free to contact the ACEEEO Secretariat.
The Annual Conference held in Strasbourg, France in 2007 covered the topic ‘The Professional Education of Electoral Actors’.
