The North American Chapter of the
International Geosynthetics Society

Call for Candidates – IGS North America Board 2023-2025

Dear IGS North America members,

The Board of IGS-NA seeks nominations for individuals for the President-Elect, Treasurer, and two (2) open seats for Vice-President. The current election cycle is particularly important, as the chapter is a partner to GeoSaskatoon 2023 and is developing the 5th Pan-American Conference on Geosynthetics (GeoAmericas 2024, Toronto) and the 13th International Conference on Geosynthetics (13 ICG – Montreal, 2026).

CALL FOR CANDIDATES – OPEN POSITIONS

The President-Elect serves one 2-year-term of office in that capacity, following which they serve one 2-year-term as President.

The Treasurer serves a 2-year term and is responsible for overseeing the finances of IGS-NA. (Note: IGS North America does have professional management that reports to the Treasurer.)

Vice-Presidents serve 4-year terms. IGS-NA’s Board includes four vice-presidents, whose terms are staggered. Two positions are up for election every two years.

Please contact info@igs-na.org with nominations for any of these positions before September 30, 2022. Self-nominations are encouraged.

Elections will be held in January 2023 and the new Board of Directors will officially be installed in early February during the IGS-NA general meeting at Geosynthetics Conference 2023.

John McCartney
IGS North America Past-President
