The 2019 ISV Annual General Meeting took place on October 28 as part of the 2019 ISV Annual Congress in Ghent, Belgium. ISV members in attendance cast their votes for the 2020-2021 ISV Board; members not in attendance were able to vote via email through November 11.
We were pleased to have a number of dedicated ISV members who volunteered to serve as candidates to be potential Board members. As in the past, nominations were solicited two months ahead of the Annual General Meeting through the ISV newsletter and emails to the ISV mailing list, and the official ballots were sent out two weeks ahead of the meeting.

We would like to thank ISV members for their very active participation in this year’s election and the candidates for the board and officer positions. If you would like to be active in ISV, we have many opportunities, outside a Board position, to participate in ISV, so please do not hesitate to contact us and become involved in outreach and supporting vaccine activities.
We wish to thank the dedication and significant achievement by members of the current Board (2018-2019). The current Board members and officers will serve until December 31, 2019.
We welcome the newly elected board members and officers; we are looking forward to working together to continue to promote our Society!
