Subject: IAGR Announcement of New Trustees

Dear Members,

In reference to the IAGR Board's call for nominations where the IAGR Board of Trustees announced two available positions, by nomination deadline of Wednesday, March 15, the IAGR Secretary had received two nominations.

As the number of nominees is equal to or fewer than the number of vacancies, the nominees are automatically confirmed as members of the Board of Trustees effective April 26 (Election date, ref. call for nomination).  An election process involving IAGR members will therefore not be necessary. 

Their service term will take effect with the upcoming Board of Trustees April teleconference meeting and June midyear meeting in London.
