IRSG 2022-2023 AGM and Committee Elections

The IRSG Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place immediately after Search Solutions 2022, where the committee election results were announced.  The draft 2021 minutes can be found here, with 2021 AGM confirmed minutes found here.  The full list of current committee members is now available on the IRSG governance page.  All committee positions were filled unopposed.

Newly appointed ordinary committee members include Monica Paramita (Sheffield University), Sean MacAvaney (Glasgow University), and David Rau (University of Amsterdam).  Reappointed committee members are Udo Kruschwitz (Chair), Ingo Frommholz (Treasurer), and Haiming Liu (Membership Secretary).  We wish to thank outgoing committee member Krisztian Balog (ECIR 2022 Committee Member) for their service.  Full details of the BCS IRSG committee are provided on our governance page.

A reminder our elections take place every Autumn, so please watch our governance page and the IR listserv to which you can subscribe to for future election announcements.  We are very keen to have new members on our committee.
