1. Elections for Council

Under the Constitution (Article 12) and the Bye-Laws article IV) of the EAS,
Council has the responsibility to propose a slate of  suitable candidates for 
vacant posts on the Council. Last month our President has written to you about
this. The details can be found on the EAS website at 

	http://eas.unige.ch/documents/eas_council_election_2010.pdf

It has in the meantime been brought to my attention that one of the candidates,
Mary Kontizas, is assistant Professor. My apologies for misrepresenting her job title.
