From the IAEA Executive Secretary

The nominations for the positions that will be vacant from 1 January 2015 on the IAEA Board of Trustees were: 
- Anat Ban Simon from NITE as a Full Member Organisation representative 
- John Pitman as A Full Individual Member representative, the newly established position as per the changes to the Constitution, approved at the AGM in Tel Aviv in 2013. 
The Nominating Committee has checked the status of the nominees and both are members of IAEA in good standing.  There were no other nominations and hence there is no need for an election.  Hence they are appointed as members of the Board of Trustees and assume office on 1 January 2015.  The Board of Trustees thanks them for their willingness to serve IAEA in this capacity and congratulates them on their appointment.
