Conclusion of the IAOA Second 2020 Virtual Assembly and Executive Council Elections

Dear IAOA Members and Followers,

The nomination phase for the 2020 Executive Council election has closed on November 10, 2020. In addition to Ken Baclawski, Oliver Kutz, Frank Loebe, Fabian Neuhaus, Laure Vieu, and Amanda Vizedom who are candidates for re-election, we have three new candidates: Torsten Hahmann, Megan Katsumi and Emilio Sanfilippo.

We thus have nine candidates for nine positions. The current Executive Council, during its meeting on November 16, has acknowledged all candidates and confirmed that in this situation the election follows the procedure according to Article VII, Section 4, of our earlier Bylaws (IAOA with its new Swiss statutes is still in the process of elaborating new 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 2021-2022 consists of:

  • Ken Baclawski, Northeastern University, USA
  • Torsten Hahmann, University of Maine, USA
  • Megan Katsumi, University of Toronto, Canada
  • Oliver Kutz, Free University of Bolzano, Italy
  • Frank Loebe, University of Leipzig, Germany
  • Fabian Neuhaus, Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg, Germany
  • Emilio Sanfilippo, LOA, ISTC-CNR, Trento, Italy
  • Laure Vieu, IRIT-CNRS, University of Toulouse, France
  • Amanda Vizedom, Credit Suisse, USA

The new officers will take up their roles on January 1st, 2021, 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.

Finally, we would like to thank the three outgoing Executive Council members, Roberta Ferrario, Michael Gruninger and Maria Keet, for their outstanding service to the community.

Laure Vieu
President, IAOA

IAOA Second 2020 Virtual Assembly and Executive Council Elections

Dear IAOA members,

The second 2020 IAOA Virtual Assembly will soon be open, and we will be selecting members for the Executive Council. These elections follow the regulations in the IAOA Statute as of Jun 23, 2016 [1,2].

All members of the Executive Council come to the end of their terms at the end of 2020. The current Executive Council has decided to keep the present number of people, so nine (9) persons need to be elected.

PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR MEMBERSHIP IS UP-TO-DATE.
If you have not renewed your membership in the last 12 months, then your membership has most probably elapsed; please apply for renewal [3] before making a nomination or otherwise participating in the election. (Memberships are valid individually for one year, starting from the date of approval of the membership/renewal request. In few cases, more than 1 year membership may apply.)

For the next few weeks, we foresee three main phases:
Candidature, Campaigning, and Elections, as follows.

 

A – Candidature phase (from October 28 to November 9)

At least two members (a proposer and at least one seconder, none of whom should be the nominee) are required in order to make a nomination. The members making the nomination shall ensure that they, as well as the nominee, are current members of the association, and that the nominee shall accept the nomination.

PLEASE START NOW IN MAKING YOUR NOMINATIONS, by means of a message posted to [4] iaoa-member@ovgu.de and specifying the proposer, the seconder(s), the nominee, and optionally some motivations and/or a candidate’s position statement (which can be circulated afterwards). We have also set up a wiki page to discuss these elections at

[5] https://wiki.iaoa.org/index.php/IAOA_Assembly_2020_11 .

Please feel free to send any editing comments to [6] iaoa-election@ovgu.de .

Nominations can be freely discussed on the members’ mailing list [4,7] from the nomination time to the end of the campaigning phase.

 

B – Campaigning phase (from November 10 to November 16)

Campaigning can start with the first candidate nomination, i.e., during the candidature phase. Once that phase is closed, there is still a week available for active campaigning and discussion on the members’ mailing list [4,7].

 

C – 2020 IAOA virtual assembly eBallot (from November 17 to November 22)

In this period you will be asked to vote for nine Executive Council candidates. Please be so kind as to participate in the vote even if you decide to abstain, so we can count you among the participants. The more participants, the stronger the result of the election will be!

The list of candidates and their position statements will be made available through the IAOA Election wiki page [5].

Results will be announced to the mailing list [4] and the wiki page [5].

We will be grateful for any efforts and contributions to the 2020 EC election.
Active involvement in IAOA through Executive Council membership is a highly valuable service to the whole community. Please do consider nominating candidates!

Laure Vieu
President, IAOA
