Elections for both the IPA Council and Permanent Council will be held in November-December 2014.

Twenty members of the IPA Council will be elected for four-year terms (2015-2019); the Council-elect will then elect 10 additional members in March 2015. The new Council (30 members) will elect the Executive Committee in June 2015. Nominees for the IPA Council must be members of the Association and should agree in advance to stand for election.

Seven members of the Permanent Council will be elected for eight-year terms (2015-2023). Nominees for the Permanent Council need not be members of the Association; they should agree in advance to stand for election. *This paragraph corrects the erroneous information published in the August 2014 JIPA.*

Members of the Association are asked to submit nominations for the IPA Council and the Permanent Council to the Secretary.
