International Committee

To run PME over the year, prepare and implement decisions made during the Annual General Meeting (AGM) and do most of the everyday work, PME has an International Committee (IC) of 16 elected members. Each year, during the AGM meeting at the PME conference, four new nominees are elected for four years by the members present.

Being a part of the IC is a great opportunity to contribute to PME organization. The work on the IC involves taking part in the IC meetings one day before, some hours during and one day after the PME conferences, and to contribute to the work in one of the four IC Portfolio Groups over the year:

  • The Vice President Portfolio Group which is mainly responsible for PME scientific issues
  • The Policy Portfolio Group which mainly deals with PME policy issues
  • The Secretary Portfolio Group which mainly takes care of communication within PME
  • The Treasurer Portfolio Group which is responsible for PME financial affairs

To stand for the IC, you need to fill in the IC application form to introduce yourself and your goals for your involvement in the IC.

This form must be signed by yourself and two researchers who support your application. You hand this form to the PME Administrative Manager (Birgit Griese) at least 24 hours before the start of the AGM. You and your supporters should be present at the AGM, one of your supporters will be asked to introduce you shortly before the election starts.

The main restriction for becoming part of the IC is that at most three members from one country are allowed on the IC at any time.
