We extend grateful thanks to all for being willing to serve on the Board, and we note that a very small number of votes divided the candidates.  We hope that Ademar Romeiro, Marco Janssen and Pushpam Kumar will be willing to run again at the next election.  Number of votes cast can be seen at .

We are indebted to Peter May for his invaluable  service to the ISEE, which he continues as organizing chairman of the ISEE 2012 Conference in Rio.  In view of his workload for the conference and his involvement in ECOECO (Brazil) he is relieved to take a break from the ISEE Board, but he will certainly continue to be involved.

Special thanks to John Gowdy for a valiant and very tough term as President. John now passes the Presidency of the ISEE to Bina Agarwal who has brought substantial energy and worked extremely hard in her two year term as President Elect. As President of the ISEE, she is also  President of the ISEE 2012 Conference in Rio.

The Amendments to the Constitution and By-Laws were  approved by a very strong majority.
