AGU Elections

Section and College of Fellows Candidates

Each section selects its president-elect and secretary candidates. The current presidents-elect will move up to assume the position of president, ensuring leadership continuity. Some sections also asked current secretaries to serve a second term. Two sections are electing leaders for the first time: GeoHealth and Education.

Section presidents and presidents-elect serve as members of the AGU Council, along with the AGU president-elect, the chairs or vice-chairs of 11 standing committees, the College of Fellows chair, six students and early-career scientists, the AGU president (nonvoting), the executive director/CEO (nonvoting), and up to five at-large appointed positions.

The College of Fellows is also participating in the AGU election for the first time by electing a new vice-chair. The current vice-chair will assume the chair position and serve on the AGU Council.
