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 four available positions including Trustees seeking re-election for their positions, by nomination deadline of Wednesday, September 13, the IAGR Secretary had received four nominations.

As the number of nominees is equal to the number of vacancies, the nominees are automatically confirmed as members of the Board of Trustees effective October 17 (Election date, ref. call for nomination).  A ballot election process involving IAGR members will therefore not be necessary. 

Their service term will take effect with the upcoming October 2017 Annual Members Meeting in Johannesburg.
