New IAUC Board Members

October 30, 2017 in IAUC Admin, Members

The Board of the IAUC welcomes our newest Board Members: Chao Ren (Chinese University of Hong Kong, China) and Benjamin Bechtel (Universität Hamburg, Germany) who were elected in the recent IAUC Board election.

Chao and Benjamin join our current Board members.

Let me also take this opportunity to thank Alexander Baklanov (WMO) for his service to the Board as his term comes to an end. Alexander has been instrumental in fostering better linkages between IAUC and WMO and in promoting the urban scale at WMO.

Thank you to all our members who participated by voting in the election and a special thanks to those who stood for nomination.
