Division Meeting for Tectonics and Structural Geology (TS)
Convener: Fabrizio Storti 
Wed, 05 May, 12:15–13:15  / Room 30
the Business Meeting of the Tectonics and Structural Geology Division (TS) of the European Geoscience Union (EGU) is scheduled for next Wednesday 5th of May at 12.15, room 30, during the EGU General Assembly 2010. The Business Meeting is a vital event for the Division because, according to the bottom-to-top philosophy of EGU, it provides the forum for informing you about the initiatives at the Division and Union level, for collecting your feedback, and for bringing it at the Council attention. Among the items in the agenda:

1) The elections of the Division President for the 2011-2013 term (November);
2) The new selection procedures for awarding the best young scientists at the Division and Union levels;
3) The newly launched EGU open access electronic journal, named Solid Earth;
4) The newly launched EGU Summer School on Analysis of deformation in crystalline rocks, organized by G. Pennacchioni and N. Mancktelow on behalf of our Division.

According to the EGU Constitution, Division Presidents serve for a two-year term and can be elected again for another term, for a total of 4 years as a maximum. I served two years and I realized that the effectiveness of the President increases trough time, after becoming familiar with EGU rules, the Council past activity, and Council members. For this reason I am strongly convinced that the Division President should serve for two terms, as it actually happens in most Divisions. Accordingly, I will be candidate again for the next term. All EGU members can be candidates at the Division President elections, provided that the EGU Council approves their CVs. We will discuss candidatures and collect CVs at the Division Business Meeting. Everyone who is willing to be a candidate is invited to attend the Business Meeting.


Please attend our Business Meeting next May 5th. The more we will be, the more effective our meeting will become and, eventually, the more useful our Division will be. Sandwiches and drinks will be available!!


Looking forward to see you there.


Best wishes,

Fabrizio Storti
