Dear ISC members, Dear Colleagues and Friends,
On behalf the Governing Board, it is my pleasure to announce that the registration for the 2nd ISC General Assembly, held online from 11 – 15 October, is now open. We invite you to register as soon as possible via https://council.science/GA2021.
All representatives, office bearers and staff members of organizations that are ISC Members and ISC affiliated bodies are cordially invited to attend the meeting. Registration closes on 10 October 2021, 23:00 UTC. In the registration form, every ISC Member (categories 1 and 2) will have the opportunity to designate one voting delegate (or a proxy voting delegate).
The Assembly will be an opportunity to look back at everything that the ISC has achieved in the first three years of its existence, to elect the next Governing Board, and to approve the ISC 2022–2024 Action Plan and Budget. We also look forward to your participation in discussions around specific projects.
On 13 October, there will be special events open to the wider public, where we will look at the ISC COVID-19 Outcomes Scenarios Project, have an opportunity to engage with ISC Patrons Mary Robinson, Ismail Serageldin and Vint Cerf, and watch the first ISC Awards Ceremony.
The General Assembly will take place on an integrated platform, which will open a few days before the meeting. In the meantime, you may browse the portfolios of all candidates standing for election to the incoming Governing Board as well as GA-related documents on the Members-only section of the GA website.
Don’t forget to register and see you at the ISC General Assembly 2021.
Daya Reddy, ISC President, on behalf of the Governing Board
President, International Science Council
