Nominations for the 2014-2015 AEIRS election are now open and will continue through January 27, 2014. The following positions will be filled by election: President-Elect and Director-at-Large
• President-Elect: All active AEIRS members who have served on the AEIRS Board of Directors are eligible for the position of President-Elect. The term of service is three years for this position (one year each as President-Elect, President, and Chair of the Board).
• Director-at-Large: All active members of AEIRS are eligible for the Director position. The term of service is three years for the open Director position.
Some members feel that they should not run for a Board position because they are not qualified, they have no chance of winning because they are “unknown”, or they cannot commit to a “huge” obligation. Nothing can be further from the truth! AEIRS values its members and welcomes all those interested to run. We are a voluntary operation and this is a way for you to become more involved with the wonderful people in this organization.
Although there is some time commitment for the positions, it is likely nowhere near as much as most members think. If you are interested in running for office, or if you know someone you think would be an ideal candidate, please contact Joy Menser or Paula Pate-Schloder, Co-Chairs of the Nominations Committee. They would be happy to discuss the requirements and/or the process with you.
