In addition the ISSS would like to thank those  of you that have submitted a nomination for Honorary Members to the IUSS. The IUSS Secretariat has received 14 nominations from Full members and three from Honorary members. The nominations will be evaluated by the Executive Committee and distributed to the Council members at least three months before the Inter-Congress meeting.

The election of the next President of the IUSS is due this year. The appointment of the President represents a total of six years commitment to the Union by serving two years each as President-Elect (2021/22), President (2023/24) and Past-President (2025/26).
The Standing Committee on Presidential Elections has defined the respective procedure and the guidelines. Nominations should be made by two accomplished, highly-respected senior soil scientists.

Full nomination documentation should be submitted electronically to Prof. Dr. Rainer Horn (Email: rhorn@soils.uni-kiel.de) by June 1, 2020. A copy should also be sent to  iuss@umweltbundesamt.at.
