January 2021: Call for candidates for a new EAOG Board member
The purpose of the EAOG Board is to grow and sustain activities which support the international Organic Geochemistry community, including but not limited to liaising with Elsevier, publishers of our signature journal Organic Geochemistry, evaluating and distributing various Awards, selecting the IMOG scientific committee and Treib’s medalist selection committee, organizing (with EAGE) the biennial international Congress, maintaining an on-line community space, and connecting our diverse community across industry and academia – all within a healthy and sustainable budget.
As elected volunteers, EAOG Board members serve for four years, with possibility for re-election one time.
In September 2021, the second term of Board member Bart van Dongen will end.
In accordance with the Articles of EAOG, other candidates may now stand for election.
