The Election Task Force would like to advise you of the outcome of the election to fill the Secretary General vacancy on the International Executive Committee. Following a very tight ballot between two very worthy candidates, Dr Carlos Acevedo received a greater number of votes and is therefore deemed elected.
Dr Acevedo will assume his new role with immediate effect.
The Election Task Force would like to take this opportunity to thank all those Full Members who took an active part in the election process, those who nominated candidates and those who cast votes during the election period. In particular, the task force would like to thank Mrs Sari Tervonen, the second candidate standing in the election, and would like to encourage her to continue her interest in the work of IBE and to consider standing again in future elections.
