Last month, EGU members voted for the positions of EGU treasurer and division presidents. You can find out the results of the EGU elections on our website. This month, we are once again advertising a job opportunity at the EGU Executive Office. If you'd like to help us bridge the gap between science and policymaking, consider applying for our vacancy.

In other news, the EGU and the Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS) have announced they will organise a joint conference on natural hazards. More details about the meeting, which will take place in the Philippines in February 2018, will be available next year on the EGU website.

Follow the links below for more news, including several updates and information regarding the EGU General Assembly. Remember, the deadline for abstracts is 11 January!
