The ICTV Plenary Session at the International Congress of Virology in Singapore is scheduled for 11:30 – 12:30 hr on Monday July 17th 2017. Voting members of the ICTV (i.e. Members of the Executive Committee, Life Members, Subcommittee Members, and National Representatives) will have the opportunity to elect virologists to serve 3-year terms on the Executive Committee in the following positions: President, Vice-President, Business Secretary (6 year term), and 8 ‘elected members’. The other positions on the Executive Committee are not the subject of voting at the Plenary Session; they are: 2 Secretaries (Andrew King and Elliot Lefkowitz) serving 6 year terms to expire in 2020, and 6 Subcommittee Chairs appointed directly by the Executive Committee (see list below).
The Executive Committee is grateful to the following individuals who have agreed to stand for election or re-election.

4.3 Election or appointment procedures for positions on ICTV and its Executive Committee
In addition, nominations for an Elected Member vacant seat may be submitted to the Nominations Subcommittee by any virologist and will be allowed up to 2 days prior to the Plenary Meeting at which elections will be held. All nominations must be accompanied by a brief biographical sketch and an indication that the nominee is willing to stand for election.
Elected Members shall be nominated, seconded, and elected at a Plenary Meeting of the ICTV for a term of three years and may not serve for more than two consecutive terms of three years each. Generally, three or four of the eight elected Members shall be replaced every three years.
Unlike the other positions on the EC, Subcommittee Chairs are appointed directly by the EC. The appointments for 2017-2020 are expected to be as follows (subject to confirmation at the EC meeting in Singpore, 14-16 July 2017):
