IAH Annual Report 2021
Governing and managing
All members, individual or corporate, are members of the Association’s international body. IAH encourages the formation of national or regional committees in order to carry out local administration, promote contacts and co-operation and undertake relevant studies of local or regional interest. National committees may be organised in a number of different ways according to national practice and circumstance.
The Council of IAH, appointed by election by the full membership every four years, is the Association’s governing body. The majority of our current Council was elected in September 2020 in the lead up to our online General Assembly; following the sad demise of two Council members a further election took place during 2021 in the lead up to our online Congress in Brazil. You can find out more about IAH’s Council, including each individual, at https://iah.org/about/council.
IAH’s members play an important part in advising Council on matters raised at the annual general meeting, such as subscription fees and policy initiatives. They can also nominate colleagues for an award recognising service and achievements of members and others who have worked for improved understanding of groundwater.
IAH published its ‘Statement on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion’, and welcomes all to our Association. IAH commits to promoting inclusion, providing fairness to all our members and equal treatment to all, regardless of age, civil status, class, colour, disability, gender identity, nationality, parental status, race or ethnic origin, religion or belief and sexual orientation.
IAH continues its preparations for World Water Day 2022: “Groundwater: Making the invisible visible”, with a significant contribution to the World Water Development Report. Chapters, commissions and networks propose a comprehensive list of, events, outreach activities and publications to commemorate this ‘year for groundwater’.
