There were four nominations for Executive Committee members, and all candidates have met the requirements as noted in the Bylaws. The candidates include: Denise Fleith (Brazil), Leonie Kronborg (Australia), Sue Prior (Hong Kong), and Tracy Riley (New Zealand). Since there are four spots opening on the Executive Committee, it is not necessary to have a ballot.
To return to a schedule of electing three Executive Committee members each election, Denise Fleith has agreed to serve a reduced two-year term. The other three candidates will serve a complete four-year term that begins at the conclusion of the 2017 WCGTC World Conference in Sydney.
Thank you to each candidate for their willingness to serve the WCGTC.
