  • Election process. Members of the CCM are elected through a fair, transparent and democratic process that is properly documented in compliance with the CCM’s regulations.
  • Alternate Members. During election and selection of each CCM member, the electing or selecting organization or sector elects or selects an alternative member for that CCM member.  The alternate member represents the same constituency or sector and may represent the same organization as the CCM member. The alternate takes part in the operations of the CCM in the absence of the CCM member.
