The General Assembly will undertake two particularly important activities
in CODATA governance.  These are:

1) The election of Officers and Ordinary Members of the CODATA Executive
Committee.  See further information below.

2) Selection of Task Groups.  Information to follow.

*1.1) Election of Officers and Ordinary Members*

Delegates at the 2016 General Assembly will vote to elect the Officer roles
of Secretary General and Treasurer as well as eight Ordinary Members of the
Executive Committee.

*1.2) CODATA 2016 Election Page and Candidates’
Statements: http://www.codata.org/events/general-assembly/general-assembly-2016/codata-elections-2016

In the interests of time, we will not have ‘hustings’ or presentations from
the candidates.  For this reason, it is particularly important that members
and delegates consult the candidates documentation (nomination form etc)
and the statements in favour of candidacy that are being posted on the
CODATA blog and that are linked from the election page

The voting procedure is described in the Appendix to the DRAFT Agenda.

*2) Selection of Task Groups*

Information on the selection of Task Groups will follow later this week.

With very best wishes,


On behalf of Simon Hodson, Executive Director, CODATA
