IOR President-Elect nominations - The IOR Constitution requires that the Board make a recommendation to members of candidates for President-Elect.   A Nominating Committee consisting of the current Board Members and Past Presidents considered 13 possible candidates against the role specification.  The Board has decided to recommend the following two candidates to the membership from which to select:

  • Graeme Fox FInstR

The role of the President-Elect is to support the current IOR President in their role as Chairman of the IOR Board of Trustees until they stand down the following year.
