Nominations for the 2016-2017 AEIRS election are now open and will continue through January 18, 2016. The following positions will be filled by election: President-Elect and Director-at-Large.
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 Kenya Haugen, Chair of the Nominations Committee. She would be happy to discuss the requirements and/or the process with you.
Information will continue to be available on the Elections Page of the AEIRS website.
Now is the time. You are the right person. Get involved. Self-nominate today!
The Declaration of Nomination form and the duties of the offices are listed below. Continue to check this section for more information. Candidate Profiles and ballots will be available in February.
