Election Information


Upcoming Leadership Elections

Every 2 years, AGU members elect the people who will lead the organization for the next 4 or more years. These volunteer leaders commit to advancing the mission, vision, goals, and core values outlined in AGU’s strategic plan. Elected AGU leaders play an essential role in decisions on how to serve and engage members in AGU.

Leaders elected this year begin their service on 1 January 2017. They will still be in office during AGU’s centennial celebration in 2019, which will recognize the value and contributions of Earth and space science over the past 100 years. The centennial celebration will also look forward to how Earth and space sciences will continue to add value to society at large, as well as creating greater awareness and appreciation of Earth and space science among policy makers, media, current and prospective funders, and the public.

The 2016 AGU election will be held from 29 August through 27 September, allowing members 30 days to vote. Please mark your calendar and plan now to cast your votes for critical leadership positions. This is a great opportunity for your voice to be heard.
