News & Notices
for 2006-2007 Terms
Every two years, IUPAC proceeds with the election of its officers and
committee members. About 120 individuals are to be elected or reelected
either as Titular Members, Associate Members, or National Representatives.
Information concerning the voting process and the role of each kind
of member is contained in the Union bylaws.
Any qualified individual who is interested in being nominated is invited
to contact his/her National Adhering Organization (NAO) and/or the current
committee officers. The next election will cover a two- or four-year
term that will start in 2006. The following division committees and
standing committees will all have vacancies: Physical and Biophysical
Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry,
Macromolecular, Analytical Chemistry, Chemistry and the Environment,
Chemistry and Human Health, Chemical Nomenclature and Structure Representation,
CHEMRAWN, Chemistry and Industry, Chemistry Education, Interdivisional
Committee on Terminology, Nomenclature and Symbols, and Committee on
Printed and Electronic Publications.
As part of the nomination procedure, NAOs are invited to submit curriculum
vitaes for each nominee to the IUPAC Secretariat no later than 15 December
2004. Elections for each division committee will then take place during
the first half of 2005. The 2006-2007 memberships for all committees
will be finalized during the next General Assembly in August 2005.
Individuals interested in becoming officers on the IUPAC Bureau should
contact his/her NAO. Nominations for officers have a different timeline
and can only be made by an NAO. Elections will take place at the Council
Meeting during the next General Assembly.
Contact information for all NAOs and division and standing committee
officers are available on the IUPAC Web site, or upon request at the
