IGUS : officers

Election of officers
At the IGUS plenary meeting held every four years, national delegates elect the IGUS officers for the following four years. At the end of their term, they can be re-elected. The (co-)chairmen of the working groups are nominated by their respective working groups and their appointment is confirmed by the plenary meeting. The secretary of IGUS is elected by the plenary meeting. The election procedure and the officers' responsibilities are laid down in the
Terms of Reference.
Together, the officers form the IGUS steering committee which usually meets biennially, alternating with the biennial plenary meetings.

Officers

IGUS chairman Since the 2012 Plenary Meeting, IGUS no longer has a chairman. Instead, the officers together act as a management board.
