Message from the Election Committee

Congratulations to the newly voted-in Executive Board and the members elected to the International Council!

Congratulations as well and thanks to the IAMCR membership who, despite severe distractions, showed their commitment to the organization and voted. In the 2020 elections, ballots were sent to 89 institutions and 711 individuals. Fifty-six of the institutions (63%) and 414 individuals voted (58%). This compares to an institutional vote of 60% and individual member vote of 51% four years ago. 

The election results show the composition of IAMCR’s governing bodies ever more international and inclusive in its representation. The five elected Executive Board members come from five countries on four continents, and the 15 elected International Council members are from twelve countries on five continents. What is more, of the 15 elected members of the International Council, 10 are women and 5 men.  

The 2020 election, which was IAMCR’s second online election, went smoothly. The nomination process met IAMCR’s statutory requirements, and the opportunity to endorse candidates was widely used.  

Finally, the Election Committee would like to express its sincere thanks to Valeria Zamisch at the Executive Secretariat and Executive Director Bruce Girard for their invaluable help. 

Beate Josephi, Robin Mansell and Manuel Pinto
