Election of a new Secretary General

We would like to inform you that, after having organised the successful online election of the committees for the period 2020-2023, our Secretary General, Cornelis (Cees) Mulder, decided on 13th January to leave the Board with immediate effect because of a fundamental difference of opinion about the Institute’s internal processes and strategy. We thank Cees for his valuable contributions and strong commitment to the Institute and wish him all the best in his future personal and professional endeavours. Cees will remain a full Council member and we look forward to relying on him for further valuable input in other areas of our Institute.

Our Deputy Secretary General Magda Augustyniak is carrying out the duties of the Secretary General.

There will accordingly be an election of a new Secretary General during the next Council meeting on 8th May (C90) and, possibly, also of a new Deputy.

Details of the election procedure will be announced as soon as possible.
