Fifteenth e-IRG Meeting Agenda 22nd October, 2008, Paris France

  1. Election of the e-IRG Chair for 2009 - 2010.
    • According to the e-IRG bylaws:
      • "The designation of the Chair is prepared by a search committee which is formed by three e-IRG delegates from three different countries. The search committee should not include representatives from the same states as any confirmed candidates for Chair. The e-IRG plenum will discuss the proposal(s) of the search committee and reach a consensus. Renewing the term of the acting Chair is also by consensus."
      • "The incoming or renewed Chair should be confirmed at the penultimate meeting of the sitting Chair, to take over responsibility in due time."
    • Dany Vandromme as the chair of the search committee is responsible for this agenda item.
    • It is time for the search committee to bring you some preliminary information about the chair election to be organized at the next Delegate meeting in Paris on October 22nd. There are two nominated candidates, who accepted their nomination:
