The results of the 2023 IGCS Board of Directors Election are in. The election was held online from May 30 - June 30. The results were verified by our third-party election software vendor, Simply Voting, Inc. and reviewed by the IGCS Secretary-Treasurer Elect, Dr. Rainer Kimmig, in accordance with IGCS policy.

For each position, the candidate receiving the most votes was elected. Regional Council Members were elected by IGCS Members residing in the corresponding region.

The new Council Members' terms will begin on Nov. 7th at the close of the 2023 IGCS Annual Global Meeting in Seoul, Korea. View the current Board of Directors roster here.
