Description

The management of the proposed commission  follows the rules of the IGU in having an Executive, (Chair and two Deputy Chairs) and a Steering Committee (up to eight members). These have been chosen from participants with records of high quality research, have had an equitable global and gender distribution, and have been elected by vote of the membership at large.

Two former presidents of the commission (Jean-Bernard Racine, Larry Bourne) have taken care of a democratic election process.

In addition to the formal management of the commission we wish to add two advisory committees to increase participation within the commission: first, the expertise of long-term members will be available in a Mentors Committee, and second, a Younger Scholars Committee (http://www.unil.ch/igu-urban/page62288.html) will encourage participation and ideas from younger members. Both will consist of four members, elected every four years during annual meetings. These committees will normally meet the day before each annual meeting to discuss problems, procedures and new initiatives.
