IMCA Insights October 2009
2009 IMCA Board & Officer Election Results
by Norbert Classen

Dear Members, Dear Visitors,

We have been very busy on the IMCA Board of Directors after the recent public Elections - thus the delay of the October issue of IMCA Insights. In this issue we would like to officially announce the results of our annual Elections. Three new (and old) Board Members have been elected or re-elected by our Membership for a term of three years:

Maria Haas
Andrzej Pilski
Dave Gheesling

Congratulations to the three of you, and welcome (back) on Board! Our thanks goes also to the Candidates who didn't make it, this year - we hope that you will run for the Board in 2010!

We now have a new Board comprised of nine IMCA Board Members:

Martin Altmann - Germany
Anne Black - USA
Norbert Classen - Germany
Dave Gheesling - USA
Maria Haas - USA
Jeff Kuyken - Australia
Larry Lebofsky - USA
Andrzej S. Pilski - Poland
Sergey Vasiliev - Czech Republic

Nine members from five different countries representing our international association - not as "international" as last year since we lost Switzerland with Peter Marmet who retired and wasn't up for re-election (thanks again, Peter - it was great serving with you on the Board!). Anyway, the nine Board members and their nationalities still reflect our membership very well.

The nine Board members got together, more recently, and voted for the Officers that will serve on the Board for the next year. In an unanimous decision we decided to keep things as they are, following the saying "Never change a winning team". Thus, the new and old IMCA Board Officers are:

Norbert Classen - President
Anne Black - Vice President
Andrzej S. Pilski - Secretary
Maria Haas - Treasurer

Congratulations to all, and thanks for your confidence. We are looking forward to keep on making the meteorite world a better place, and to serve your interest to the best of our abilities. Actually, we are already busy working on new projects, including new educational approaches, better information on international and national meteorite laws etc. Stay tuned - I'm sure we will be able to present you with a lot of interesting and useful information in the upcoming issues of IMCA Insights.

All the best,
Norbert Classen
President IMCA Inc.
