Currently we don't have anyone for permafrost. Please make suggestions directly to me (Hilmar Gudmundsson), preferably before the start of the Business Meeting.

-President of the Louis Agassiz medal committee: Garry Clark is suggested as president for the next two years.  The BM needs to accept this, or come up with alternative candidates.

-Call for next year candidates for the Louis Agassiz medal. Deadline is 31 May.

Any proposal should consist  of a short summary plus a personal statement in support of  the candidate in form of an email and the CV and a short  list of the most important publications of the nominee as  attachments.
