Dear fellow IAE members,

My call for nominations for the next officers of the International Association of Egyptologists has resulted in three candidates for the presidency; Prof. Verhoeven-van Elsbergen has generously offered to serve another term as General Secretary and is the sole candidate for that position.

Each candidate for the presidency has drafted a vision statement, as required by the IAE statutes, and they all offer stimulating ideas for the progress of our association. Please read each statement carefully and cast your vote with the future of the IAE, and of Egyptology, in mind.

Candidates for the Presidency (in alphabetical order):

Candidate for the Secretary General

Ursula Verhoeven-van Elsbergen

The start of the online access to voting will be announced through an e-mail letter by the IAE’s General Secretary. After login to the IAE page (“My IAE Account”) a link will allow current IAE members to vote until July 31st, 2015. By statute, only professional and honorary members are entitled to vote (please refer to:, § 3.1 Categories of Membership).

The results will be announced at the opening session of the International Congress of Egyptologists in Florence.

James P. Allen
President of the IAE
