The primary purpose of the VGA was to conclude the membership vote on the
Executive Committee’s recommendation that the full, in person General
Assembly, which had been scheduled for 24 October 2020, be postponed to
November 2021 to take place alongside International Data Week in Seoul,
Republic of Korea, 8-11 November 2021.

• Letter from the CODATA President, Barend Mons, convening a virtual
General Assembly

• Appendix – the Case and Procedure for Postponing the CODATA General

• Matters for Voting – CODATA Virtual Assembly

Voting was conducted using the Election Runner tool, both prior to and
during the VGA with the poll closing at 12:00 UTC.

52 of 54 delegates cast their vote before the poll closed (96%).

The result was unanimous approval of the recommendation to postpone the
General Assembly and to approve the necessary extensions to terms (for
Executive Committee members, Officers and Task Groups) concomitant to that

With very best wishes,

Asha on behalf of Dr. Simon Hodson, Executive Director, CODATA
