Because many potential respondents are currently participating in the austral summer Antarctic campaign, we have been asked by some International Glaciological Society (IGS) members to extend the deadline. Consequently, we have set a new deadline on 15 February 2019.

REMINDER OF THE MOTIVATION OF THE SURVEY:
The International Glaciological Society was born 82 years ago, and its Constitution was last renewed 33 years ago. The most relevant change in the IGS during recent years has been the transition to open access for the Journal and Annals. Other significant recent changes have been the setting of IGS core values and renovation of the awards system. But neither science nor society is static and as the ways of doing and disseminating science continue to change, scientific societies should respond, making effective use of new technologies and updating their governance rules where this makes sense. In our case, it is time to review the IGS Constitution again and this has to be done with the critical input of IGS members -present or past- as well as those who could potentially become members. This is the motivation of the present survey, which we strongly encourage you to answer.
Thanks to all those who already answered the survey!
