Voting is a right of AGU membership. To be eligible to vote in the 2020 election, you must be a member in good standing, which requires joining AGU or renewing your membership by 1 September 2020. In addition to paying your dues, please go online and ensure that your section affiliations are up to date. AGU allows members to belong to as many sections as desired to encourage interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research. Each member will have the opportunity to vote for AGU Board members, student and early-career positions on the Council, and leaders of all sections with which they are affiliated. You must be an AGU Fellow to vote for the College of Fellows vice chair.
Voting opens in late September and will elect leaders to serve in 2021–2022. AGU bylaws require that the proposed slates be announced to the membership 30 days before the ballot is finalized. The bylaws also allow for additional nominations from the general membership by petition, provided that each petition is signed by at least 1% of the full voting members of the Union, section, or College of Fellows, as appropriate. This year, petitions must be received no later than 21 August. Each nominee must be an AGU member and provide a letter with the petition agreeing to serve if elected. Please send petitions to Eric Davidson, Past President, AGU, 2000 Florida Avenue NW, Washington, D.C. 20009, USA, or send them by email to [email protected].
The polls will open in late September and stay open for 30 days. The Leadership Development/Governance Committee plans to announce the final ballot on the AGU website by early September. Election results will be announced in November, and newly elected members of the Board and Council will serve 2 years, from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2022.
Emails with election information will go out to all eligible voters beginning in September. It is important for members to vote and provide feedback on the voting process so that Leadership Development/Governance Committee members and staff can continue to improve the voting experience for our members. In the previous AGU election, 2 years ago, over 4,200 comments were received from voters and reviewed, with 87% of commenters indicating that they were satisfied or very satisfied with the process.
The AGU Leadership Development/Governance Committee is charged with identifying and developing leadership within AGU to advance the strategic plan and strengthen the governance model. The work of this committee is important to AGU’s mission, and its workload has increased significantly. To add more workers and increase its diversity of perspectives, the committee this year expanded to 10 members. Working with the committee chair, AGU past president Eric Davidson, are members Aisling Dolan, Robert Duce, Luis Gonzalez, Peter Griffith, Eileen Hofmann, Betty Johnson, Sarah Kruse, James Pizzuto, Sabine Stanley, and Meng Zhou. They did an outstanding job and deserve our gratitude.
For the upcoming election, the committee followed this process:
