- For the position of Deputy Chairperson came forward Mr. Eric Abramson.
- For the position of Deputy Chairperson/Treasurer came forward Dr. Keiko Nishimoto.
Since no other candidates came forward for both the Deputy Chairperson position as well as the Deputy Chairperson/Treasurer position, Mr. Eric Abramson and Dr. Keiko Nishimoto are automatically (re)elected.
