In my capacity as IASIL Returning Officer, I am pleased to confirm that the recent nomination process for the IASIL Executive is now complete. The list of duly nominated members for the period 2016-19 is as follows:

Ondřej Pilný – Chairperson

Clíona Ó Gallchoir – Secretary

Tina O’Toole – Treasurer (2016-17)

Christina Morin – Treasurer (2017-19)

Rui Carvalho Homem – Returning Officer
Claire Connolly – Vice-Chairperson for Ireland

Alexandra Poulain – Vice-Chairperson for Europe

José Lanters – Vice-Chairperson for North America

Naoko Toraiwa – Vice-Chairperson for Japan

Youngmin Kim – Vice-Chairperson for Other Countries


Lucy Collins – Representative for Ireland

Tom Walker – Representative for Ireland

Ian Walsh – Representative for Ireland


Shaun Richards – Representative for Europe
Marisol Morales Ladrón – Representative for Europe

Katharina Rennhak – Representative for Europe


Kate Costello-Sullivan – Representative for North America

As the list shows, all positions have been filled and are uncontested. Under the applicable regulations, an election will not be necessary, and the nominations will be validated at the forthcoming AGM in Cork.

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 Cork next July,

With best wishes,


(Rui Carvalho Homem)
