There are six permanent positions for student and early career members on the AGU Council. The Governance committee invited volunteer leaders familiar with AGU’s governance structure to submit nominations for two open student and early career positions. Nominees were invited to indicate their interest in the position after being provided information on the role of the Council in AGU governance, the strategic plan, and the job description. The identification and nomination process continues to be successful. Many candidates were highly qualified and the Governance Committee found it difficult to choose only four candidates. Student and early career candidates not selected for the ballot will be given priority for other leadership opportunities at AGU to ensure we continue to engage and nurture the next generation of volunteer leaders.
