In my capacity as IASIL Returning Officer, I am pleased to confirm that the recent nomination process for the IASIL Executive has taken place within the period for which it was announced, and in full compliance with the IASIL constitution.
The list of nominated members for the period 2019-22 is as follows:
Ondřej Pilný – Chairperson
Cormac O’Brien – Secretary
Christina Morin – Treasurer
Rui Carvalho Homem – Returning Officer
Tom Walker – Vice-Chairperson for Ireland
Marisol Morales Ladrón – Vice-Chairperson for Europe
José Lanters – Vice-Chairperson for North America
Andrew Fitzsimons – Vice-Chairperson for Japan
Laura Izarra – Vice-Chairperson for Other Countries
Claire Connolly – Representative for Ireland
Lucy Collins – Representative for Ireland
Ian Walsh – Representative for Ireland
Shaun Richards – Representative for Europe
Katharina Rennhak – Representative for Europe
Thierry Robin – Representative for Europe
Jennifer Slivka – Representative for North America
Susan Cahill – Representative for North America
Kate Costello-Sullivan – Representative for North America
Naoko Toraiwa – Representative for Japan
Toshiki Tatara – Representative for Japan
Hironao Kobayashi – Representative for Japan
Beatriz Kopschitz Bastos – Representative for Other Countries
Laura Loftus – Postgraduate Representative
Positions for which no nominations were received:
Two Representatives, Other Countries
As specified in the IASIL constitution, the positions for which no nominations were received should now be filled by co-option, to be ratified at the Annual General Meeting of IASIL.
As regards all other positions, no more than one nomination has been received, which means that (again, under the IASIL constitution) it will not be necessary to hold a ballot. However, all nominations will have to be validated at the forthcoming AGM in Dublin.
Allow me a brief note to say that it was a genuine pleasure to cooperate with all who took part in this process – and to add that it’s a privilege to find myself nominated for another term in this position.
Looking forward to seeing you all (or as many of you as possible) in Dublin next July,
With best wishes,
(Rui Carvalho Homem)
