AGU LEADERSHIP ELECTIONS
Every Vote Counts: Final Slate for 2022 AGU Elections
Voting is a right and a responsibility of membership, and your vote is important!
Every 2 years, AGU members elect the people who will lead the organization for the next several years. These volunteer leaders commit to advancing the mission, vision, goals, and core values of AGU and to upholding AGU’s ethics policy.
Leadership elected this year will continue to launch the policies and programs needed to advance AGU’s strategic plan, which includes three bold goals:
- Catalyze discovery and solutions to scientific and societal challenges
- Promote and exemplify an inclusive scientific culture
- Partner broadly with other organizations and sectors to effectively address scientific and societal challenges
This year’s slate of candidates are impressively experienced, talented, and diverse, and they are ready to take on these important challenges.
Leaders elected this year begin their 2-year terms on 1 January 2023. All regular and student members who joined AGU or renewed their AGU membership by 5 August 2022 are eligible to vote in this year’s elections.
When Do the Polls Open?
The 2022 AGU elections will be held from 7 September through 6 October, allowing members 30 days to vote. Please mark your calendar and plan now to cast your votes for these critical leadership positions. This is a great opportunity for you to make your voice heard. You will receive an email with a direct link to the voting site from our election vendor Survey and Ballot Systems.
Who Is Eligible to Vote?
All regular and student members who joined AGU or renewed their AGU membership by 5 August 2022 are eligible to vote in this year’s elections. Please contact AGU Member Central if you have any questions about your membership status or section affiliations.
What Information Is Provided About Candidates?
Each candidate has provided a photo and a brief biographical sketch, including self-identification of voices and perspectives they would bring if elected, a summary of relevant volunteer experience, and a short CV. In addition, candidates were asked to reply to a specific question about how they can contribute to the implementation of AGU’s strategic plan.
The ballot also includes information on continuing volunteer leaders so that voters have a complete picture of the diversity represented in the Board, Council, sections, and the College of Fellows.
