We are very sad to report the death of Antonio Pasquali, who died at the age of 90 on October 5th in the city of Reus in Catalonia, Spain. He was an important Latin American communication scholar with a global reach whose life was dedicated to intellectual work, research, teaching and writing.
Following each annual conference, IAMCR conducts an online survey of participants to evaluate how we did and to learn how to make future conferences better. 1,766 participants were invited to complete the survey for the 2019 conference and 53% esponded. Respondents came from 73 of the 83 countries represented at the conference.
The following sections and working groups elected new officers during their business meetings at the Madrid conference. New officers are elected for four year terms. 
IAMCR would like to express its sincere thanks to the outgoing officers and to welcome the new ones.
