Following the request of the IAPWS Executive Committee adopted during the IAPWS Meeting held in 11-16 September 2016 in Dresden, Germany, the Czech National Committee called elections of candidates for the position of IAPWS Vice-President. The members of the Czech Committee proposed and elected unanimously their long-standing chair, Dr. Jan Hrubý, as the only candidate. The proposed candidate was accepted by the IAPWS secretariat and Dr. Jan Hrubý assumed his position as of 1 January 2017.

The Czech National Committee consequently elected Dr. Tomáš Němec, previously a member of the secretariat, as its new chairman.
