Dear IGU National Committee Chair (or associate)
 
I am writing to you formally to provide information regarding the election process for International Geographical Union Executive Committee members that will take place by ballot early in 2018.  There are four vacancies due to the completion of terms of office of the a) Secretary-General and Treasurer (who is not eligible for re-election) and b) three Vice–Presidents (all three of whom are eligible for re-election).  The attached letter (text copied below) provides full details of what is required.
 
I should appreciate your consulting with your respective IGU National Committee colleagues and consider nominating appropriate candidates by the closing date (31st January 2018).  The results of the ballot will be announced shortly thereafter and the successful candidates will take up their positions on the IGU Executive Committee at the conclusion of the IGU-CAG Regional Conference in Quebec, Canada, in August 2018.
