Take a peek in the 4th edition of the ICZN, effective as of 1 Jan 2000, and
you will see that the president is Alessandro Minelli (of Italy) and the
previous president was Otto Kraus (of Germany), and that that the Chairman
of the Editorial Committee is WDL Ride (Australia). Other members are HG
Cogger (Australia), C Dupuis (France), O Kraus (Germany), A Minelli (Italy),
FC Thompson (US) and PK Tubbs (UK).
These people are nominated and appointed (in this case, in Canberra). On
page XIV, low centre, you will see how things happened. That is, who was
appointed originally, who stepped down, etc.
