Posted by Eduardo Alarcón in INQUA News & Events on 20 Feb 2019
The voting period for the Commission Officer elections took place from 15th January to 1st February, where commission members had the opportunity to elect their representatives for the 2019-2023 inter-congress period.
INQUA has five Commissions (Coastal & Marine Processes; Humans & the Biosphere; Palaeoclimates; Stratigraphy & Chronology; Terrestrial Processes, Deposits & History) that provide leadership in different spheres of research and are responsible for ensuring that INQUA scientists remain at the forefront of activity in their fields. The duty of a Commission is to encourage and facilitate: 1) communication within the Commission, including all Corresponding Members, and between the Commission and the INQUA Executive Committee, and 2) participation in cooperative projects, scientific meetings, and field excursions during Congresses and inter-Congress periods.
The newly elected Commission Officers, listed by Commission, are:
Humans & Biosphere (HABCOM)
Stratigraphy & Chronology (SACCOM)
Terrestrial Processes, Deposits & History (TERPRO)
Coastal & Marine Processes (CMP)
Congratulations to the new officers! The INQUA Executive Committee will soon be contacting the new teams of officers directly to transmit information obtained from the review of Commission activities carried out over this last year and enable them to begin the development of their plans for the next inter-congress period.
The transfer of mandate with the new INQUA Executive Committee will take place at INQUA Congress in Dublin, on 1st August 2019.
