Nominations for IAU Committees
IAU Committees are a huge part of our operations. We rely to them for IAU's everyday functioning from communications to technical and to records. Volunteer members in these committees bring their knowledge and expertise to the table and assist in promoting this global sport.
We will be opening nominations for the committees listed below on 5th July 2021. Self-nominations can be made by sending an email to Hilary Walker, IAU General Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org
