Proposal for office of the President of
The International Committee (IC) of IOI 2004 discussed the
proposal attached from Michael Cotter for the creation of the position of
“President of the IOI.” The concept was approved by the IC.
The proposed change is welcomed but has implications that
will affect many changes to the IOI regulations. The IC
felt it was not practical or wise to make these necessary changes without further
input from the GA and IOI community.
We therefore propose the following:
- The GA
approves the concept of the Office of the President of IOI.
International committee will call for further input into the attached
document to reach the Executive Director by not later than January 30th ,
input received will be circulated to members of the IC
for discussion at it’s next meeting in Nowy Sacz, Poland, April 20-24, 2005.
final recommendation for changes to regulations establishing the office of
the President of the IOI will be posted on the IOInformatics.org web site
and forwarded to all IOI members by not later than May 15, 2005.
final proposal will be presented at IOI 2005 for approval and
implementation. Thus, if approved by the GA, we expect the first president
of IOI to be elected at IOI 2005.
The IC appreciates the
initiative of Michael Cotter and members of the GA for proposing the office of
the President of the IOI. The IC commits
itself to implementing this proposal in the best interest of IOI.
Chairman IOI 2004
