34 No. 3
Every two years, IUPAC holds an election for 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 2014.
The following division committees and standing committees will all have vacancies: Physical and Biophysical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry, Polymer, 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 vitae for each nominee to the IUPAC Secretariat no later than 31 July 2012.
Elections for each division committee will then take place during the first half of 2013. The 2014–2015 memberships for all committees will be finalized during the next General Assembly in August 2013. Individuals interested in becoming officers on the IUPAC Bureau should contact their NAOs. 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 is available on the IUPAC website, or upon request at the IUPAC Secretariat (e-mail <email@example.com>; tel.: +1 919 485 8700; fax +1 919 485 8706).
