People elected to the Secretariat must be nominated by a Member Group from within their own area (that is, geographical area) or College/Pillar (that is, Community & Voluntary, Social Inclusion or Environmental).
Only Member Groups connected with the same area or College are allowed to vote for each nominee. For example, if a candidate is nominated by a group in the Social Inclusion College/Pillar in a particular Municipal District, only Member Groups who are part of the Social Inclusion College in that area can vote for them.
Secretariats must be refreshed at least every 3-5 years to make sure that there is a balance between the need to have some members in place with the knowledge and understanding of the work that the PPN is doing, and the need to make sure that the membership is properly represented.
