Massive Stars Commission approved by IAU Executive Committee

dear friends,
as you have probably seen by the email distributed by the IAU General Secretary, the proposal for a new IAU Commision on Massive Stars has been approved. This is great news for our group.

Thanks to all of you who supported the proposal, and particular thanks to those that helped to prepare it.

IAU members please note that you will have from **April 30th until May 15th** to sign-up in up to three IAU Commissions. This will be required for the subsequent election processes of the Organizing Committes.

Again, congratulations to all members of the former IAU Working Group on Massive Stars.

best regards,
Artemio Herrero
chair, on behalf of the Massive Stars Working Group Organizing Committee
