FIRST IAOA ASSEMBLY FOR 2019

Dear IAOA members,

our Statutes [1] require the Association’s Financial Statement to be formally approved every year by a (virtual) assembly.

This is a formal invitation to participate in the first 2019 virtual assembly, whose main purpose is to discuss and approve the 2018 Financial Statement.

The Financial Statement [2] is available from the Assembly page [3], together with the Auditors’ report.

Then the discussion on it (and possibly other issues concerning the Association) took place until April 05, 2019.

Finalized details on the assembly and voting procedure have been published on April 09, 2019 on the Assembly page [3].

The voting period is April 10-15, 2019. The ballot is now open, please cast your vote!

Everyone with an active IAOA membership is eligible to vote. Detailed voting instructions are available from the Assembly page [3] and have been distributed anew on April 10 just before ballot opening.

The Assembly may approve the Financial Statement by simple majority; there is no quorum. The outcome of the voting is planned to be announced to the members’ mailing list by April 18, 2019.

Laure Vieu

President, IAOA

IAOA EC Elections 2018

The nomination phase for the 2018 Executive Council election has closed on December 09, 2018. In addition to Ken Baclawski, Michael Gruninger, Roberta Ferrario, Oliver Kutz, Frank Loebe, Fabian Neuhaus, Laure Vieu, and Amanda Vizedom who are candidates for re-election, we have one new candidate: Maria Keet.

We therefore have nine candidates for nine positions. The Election Committee has acknowledged all candidates and confirms that in this situation the election follows the procedure according to Article VII, Section 4, of the Bylaws:
“If the number of candidates is not larger than the number of
vacancies, no ballot is required and the nominated candidates
are deemed to have been elected.”

In conclusion of the election, the new Executive Council for the
period of 2019-2020 consists of:
* Ken Baclawski
* Roberta Ferrario
* Michael Gruninger
* Maria Keet
* Oliver Kutz
* Frank Loebe
* Fabian Neuhaus
* Laure Vieu
* Amanda Vizedom

The new officers will take up their roles on January 1st, 2019, when the current period of office comes to an end. At its first meeting, the new EC will also newly elect the holders of the offices of President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer.

Please note that this election and its result applies to IAOA as established in Bern, Switzerland since 2016, where the Association was relocated to from Italy. As mentioned previously, IAOA in Italy has not yet been closed for administrative reasons. Accordingly and following its regulations, the Executive Council for IAOA in Italy will also be newly elected in the near future. Everyone concerned about the governance of IAOA in Italy can inquire for more information about the relation between the two associations as legal entities and can request to become also a member of that old association by writing to its new contact address:

iaoa-italy <at> iaoa.org

Finally, we would like to thank everyone who has actively participated so far, as well as all those who have meanwhile renewed their membership and thus have joined IAOA (often: again) in Switzerland. Everybody who has not yet taken the opportunity to do so is cordially invited to have a look at IAOA’s recently refurbished website and (re-)register as a member, thereby supporting the ontology community as well as becoming eligible to membership benefits.
