Elected for President-Elect 2021-2023 :
- Natalie Shlomo
Elected for Vice-President 2021-2023 :
- Jairo Arrow
- Maria Giovanna Ranalli
- Andrea D. da Silva
- Nikos Tzavidis
Congratulations to new elected officers and many thanks to all candidates who agreed to stand for election and to serve IASS if chosen for office.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the Nominations Committee: Ralf Münnich (Chair), Sanjay Chaudhuri, Andrés Gutiérrez Rojas, Ineke Stoop, Linda Young and Daniella Cocchi (ex-officio, previous Chair of the Nominating Committee), for their work and great contribution to IASS.
The newly elected officers will form the IASS Executive for 2021-2023, along with Monica Pratesi (IASS President 2021-2023), and IASS Executive Director, Ada van Krimpen (ex-officio, ISI Director).
As outgoing IASS president I want to take this opportunity to congratulate the candidates who were elected to office, but also extend my appreciation and sincere thanks to all candidates who agreed to stand for election and to serve if chosen for office.
Also, I would like to thank Monica, James, Isabel, Lucia and Nadia for their partnership as IASS Executive Committee Officers 2019-2021.
I wish Monica and the incoming EC officers a pleasant and successful journey.
With my very best wishes,
IASS President, 2019-2021
