Dear IOBB Members and Subscribers of IOBB News
As you may remember, IOBB called for nominees for various positions in
the executive committee and for national representives (2007-2008).
The nomination proceeded well and after the deadline of 15 Nov. a
discussion (via a private email list) was held among the nominees and
the IOBB planning group to ensure that duties and responsibilities
were clear to the nominees and for IOBB to answer any questions that
nominees may have.
The nominees for positions in the executive committee are:
Chairperson: Dr. Charles K. Twesigye (Uganda)
Vice-Chairperson: Prof.Dr. Marin Berovic (Slovenia)
Vice-Chairperson: Er. Venkataramaiah Jagannatha (India)
Vice-Chairperson: Dr. Ikram-ul-Haq (Pakistan)
General Secretary: Mr. Jacky Foo (Sweden)
General Secretary: Mr. Sahibzada Irfanullah (Pakistan)
General Secretary: Mr. Edward Makana (Uganda)
Treasurer: Mr. Peter Kagoro (Uganda)
(information about the nominees is available via
Between 16-30 Nov, there was also a discussion on whether it was
useful to have all 3 VCs and 3 GSs elected. The general concensus
(based on number of objections) was that IOBB would greatly benefit by
having all 3 VCs and 3 GSs involved as they would contribute to
management and organizing IOBB acivities.
TO ALL IOBB MEMBERS
This message is a call for objections if we should NOT have all 3 VCs
and 3 GSs to help IOBB between 2007 and 2008.
Please send your objection to [log in to unmask] and kindly provide
reasons on why "NOT".
