RC 27 is in the process of electing new board members and officers. Two new board members (professor Donald P. Moynihan, University of Wisconsin and associate professor Julia Fleischer, University of Bergen) were elected in Montreal. They replace professor Herman Bakvis, University of Victoria and professor Hanne Foss Hansen, University of Copenhagen. We like to thank them for their work on the SOG Board and for their service and dedication to our research group.
A new co-chair (professor Martin Lodge, LSE to replace Joel Aberbach, UCLA) and a new Secretary/Treasurer (Robert Cox, University of South Carolina to replace professor Per Lægreid, University of Bergen) were nominated in Montreal. The latter two positions will be up for final election at our conference in Bergen in February 2015. Lodge will take office at the Bergen conference and Cox at the end of 2015. In addition, several other new board members will be elected at the Bergen conference. This rolling process provides both continuity and change and allows our research committee to function smoothly.
