Call for Nomination to the AIC Executive Committee


Dear AIC Member Countries,


For personal reasons Prof. Nancy Kwallek has resigned from her position as an Ordinary Member of the AIC Executive Committee. Under Article 7 of the Statutes, the EC has decided to hold a by-election to fill the vacancy for the remainder of the period until the next election (at the Congress in October 2017). We are therefore calling for nominations by Friday 29th July 2016. In the event of two or more nominations being received, you will then be asked to vote during August.


Please note that "the membership of the Executive Committee should be such that no regular member is represented by more than one person. The exception to this rule is the Past President." Hence the new member cannot represent Australia, Taiwan, Great Britain, Portugal, Argentina or Korea. The AIC welcomes diversity and representation from all parts of the world.


To nominate someone for this position, please provide for the candidate:

·      a brief biography emphasising colour-related activity

·      a portrait photograph

·      a supporting letter signed by the Chairman of the committee of the member society


Please think carefully about this opportunity. We will welcome candidates who are active in any field of colour and who are interested to join us in the leadership of AIC.


Yours sincerely,


Lindsay MacDonald PhD

AIC Secretary/Treasurer
