IAGA Honorary members
The first reference to 'Honorary Members of IAGA' appears to be in the minutes of the IAGA EC meeting of 22-24 October 1980, as reported in IAGA News 19, 1980. The minutes state that the 'present list of Honorary Members of IAGA should be those previously known as Honorary Members of the EC'. At the Edinburgh Assembly, the past General Secretaries (L. Alldredge and J. Cardus) and four past Presidents (J. Coulomb, V. Laursen, M. Nicolet and T. Nagata) were proposed for honorary membership to the Conference of Delegates on 15 August 1981, and the nominations were approved (IAGA News 20, 1980). Note that the list of Honorary Members given in IAGA News 37, 1997 did not include M. Nicolet or V. Laursen.
- Nominations are made by the Executive Committee Members.
- The selection is made by the Executive Committee.
- The selected names are presented at the Conference of Delegates for approval.
