All nominees or a proxy will have the opportunity to briefly address the membership about their candidacy. While all IIUSA member organizations are eligible to vote in the election regardless of attendance, there will be no live stream or recording of the meeting this year. |
Each member organization in good standing* will receive information in the coming days for how to cast their electronic vote for the election. Each member organization has a “designated voter” and that person will receive emailed instructions. Voting will open following the conclusion of the membership meeting and members will have until 11:59pm on April 12, 2022 to cast their votes.
Each member organization will receive one ballot to cast votes for the four open directorship positions** and all three officer positions. Members may cast up to four votes for the same person for each directorship opening, if they choose. The four director nominees with the highest vote counts will fill the open directorship seats. The new directors will be announced in-person on Wednesday, April 13 prior to the start of sessions for the day. Results will also be emailed to the full membership soon thereafter.
*Member organizations more than two months past due will be unable to vote until the dues are paid or a payment plan is established.
**Up to, but no more than, one Director position may be filled by Service Provider members, per IIUSA’s bylaws (accessible here).
