EGU Election Autumn 2017

The EGU Election Autumn 2017 for the next Union President, General Secretary and Division Presidents was closed on 30 November 2017. We would like to thank each of the candidates for their initiative in standing for the election. We also sincerely thank all those EGU members who used their voting right. Active participation in elections ensures continuation of the well-established bottom-up structure of our Union!

Following a proposal from the EGU Council, the plenary decided on 24 April 2017 that each newly elected Division President (Division President-elect) would serve as Deputy President for the first year, then as Division President for the next two years.

In total, 2283 EGU members voted in this election. Please see the results below.
