From mid-April to mid-May 2011, we held the triennial IEA elections. This is the first time that our executive officers, the President-elect, Secretary and Treasurer, were elected by all members, rather than just those who attended the triennial World Congress of Epidemiology. It is also the first time that we instituted an internet-based voting system to elect the Executive Councils and Regional Area Counselors. 754 members voted, nearly four times the maximum number of votes that were cast in previous elections. We feel that the system is successful and will hold future elections by electronic vote as well.
We congratulate our newly elected officers!
