Deadline Extension – Nominations of next GGOS President

The elections of GGOS President for the period 2023-2027 shall take place before the 2023 IAG General Assembly in Berlin, Germany. As given in section 15 (d) of the IAG By-Laws, “The GGOS President is elected by the IAG Executive Committee from a slate of nominations submitted by the GGOS Coordinating Board in consultation with the Executive Committee. The President is appointed for one period, which may be renewed once”. The Nominating Committee is inviting you to submit nominations for the GGOS President.

The deadline to submit nominations was extended to January 17, 2023.

The GGOS President is the principal spokesperson and representative of GGOS to the IAG and outside organizations, and presides over meetings of GGOS: GGOS Days Conference (annually), the Coordinating Board Meeting (1-2 times a year, usually during EGU and AGU), and Executive Committee
Telecon (once a month).

Based on the nominations received, the Nomination Committee will prepare a list of candidates to be filled (normally two candidates) and will send it to the IAG Office. The result of the elections will be announced by June 2023.

For any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact either me, or any of the other members of the Nominating Committee listed at the top of this letter.

I am looking forward to receiving your nominations and I thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this matter.

Yours truly,

Basara Miyahara
