Suggestions for the nomination of a new Honorary Member can be sent by active EGOS members to the EGOS Executive Secreariat
firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31 of each year.
Please note: No current member of the EGOS Executive Board – whether elected by the members or ex officio – is eligible for nomination!
