IIDA Indiana Board Call for Nominations

Please take some time to seek out the promising talent around you. Some key points to consider when nominating  yourself or another candidate: 
  • All IIDA Indiana Chapter Professional and Associate members in good standing, are eligible to nominate board candidates. 
  • IIDA Indiana Chapter Bylaws require that candidates for elected positions must be Professional Members in good standing, except when noted otherwise. 
  • Of if you are not certain of someone's membership type, but feel they would make an excellent IIDA Indiana Board member; nominate them anyway!
There are a total of 14 elected positions. Each position serves a two-year term. The President-Elect serves a three-year term. The following positions are up for election this year: 
  • President-Elect/Treasurer
  • Vice President of Membership
  • Vice President of Sponsorship
  • Vice President of Professional Development
  • Vice President of Student Affairs
  • Vice President of Evansville City Center
Once a   Single Slate   of candidates is approved, an  Election Ballot   will be distributed to all   Indiana Chapter Professional Members for vote in May.  The new Board of Directors takes office on July 1, 2018.  It is expected that each VP position will be responsible to recruit members for their Committee. This will allow better delegation of tasks on the Committee
level as well as succession planning for future IIDA leaders!

Please forward any nominations including your name and the name and position for which you are nominating the candidate by Thursday, April 26th to Sarah Savage via email to treasurer@iidaindiana.org. Thank you for your continued commitment to IIDA and the Indiana Chapter.

How they may contribute to LEED projects and the latest addition of tile product certification from ANSI. Finally a case study; which exemplifies the sustainable gains that can be made in manufacturing through collaboration and partnership with the design community.
