The International Geothermal Association is calling for its membership to participate in a vote on the extension of the current term of its Board of Directors by six month to allow a change of boards to coincide with the World Geothermal Congress held every three years.

The International Geothermal Association (IGA), the global geothermal organization uniting the geothermal sector around the world, is inviting its membership to cast their vote on extending the current Board Term by a period of 6 months to April 2020. The extension is sought to adapt the board terms and the change of boards to coincide with the World Geothermal Congresses to be held every three years from 2020. With the planned extension, a new board would be elected and begin its term at the Annual General Meeting of IGA held in conjunction with the World Geothermal Congress 2020 in Reykjavik, Iceland . The following addendum will be appended to the Bylaws.

“ADDENDUM – Notwithstanding Article 8.g, the Board may, by written resolution passed by a majority of the total number of Directors at that time, extend the term of the current Directors (for the avoidance of doubt, that is from 31 October 2016 to 31 October 2019) by a period of six months to April 2020 so as to coincide with the World Geothermal Congress 2020 where the new Board will begin their term at the AGM held at that time.”
