ELECTION PROCESS 2015
It’s time to make a decision to serve the IAWP by securing a position on the Board of Directors! Take time to review Policy Nine, the Nominations and Elections Policy, on the IAWP website, look at the list of elective offices, and determine where your skills and aptitudes allow you to best participate in the governance of IAWP.
With the expanded number of regions, there are now twenty-six Regional Coordinators. The increased number of positions will provide significant cultural diversity and representation on the Board of Directors.
Letters of Intent to participate as a candidate for office are due to the Nominations Chair, Cande Ackler, by January 24, 2015 (this is a revision from the earlier announced date).
The election process is accomplished by mail-in ballots. After January 24, the Nominations and Elections Committees will gather information about the candidates, prepare ballots, and mail them to each member in “good standing” (dues paid by April 25, 2015). A Special Election Bulletin Package including candidate biographies and ballots will be mailed by May 24, 2015, and must be returned by mail so that they are received by the Elections Chair by August 12, 2015.
There will be no opportunity to vote at the Training Conference in Wales! Sealed ballots will be transported to the conference, counted by the Election Committee at the meeting site, and election results will be announced prior to the conclusion of the Annual General Membership Meeting in Wales.
Questions about the Election process may be addressed to Elections Committee Chair Wendy Wilson or Nominations Committee Chair Cande Ackler. Contact information is available in the Who’s Who section of this magazine.
