It’s that time of year again! The nominations period for Board of Directors candidates is now open.
As part of this process, IACLEA strives to infuse the Association with new leadership while simultaneously maintaining continuity and insight into the Association's needs and functions. A further goal of this process is to ensure that Board representation reflects the diversity of the membership.
Immediate Past President Chief David Bousquet chairs the Leadership Development Committee, which offers the call for nominations.
Members are strongly encouraged to nominate to the Board of Directors individuals whom they would like to see in IACLEA leadership positions. Based on your nominations, the Leadership Development Committee will finalize a slate of candidates for President-Elect, Director-At-Large, International Region Director, and Mid-America Region Director.
Who Qualifies to Run for a Board Position?
President-Elect: To be eligible for the President-Elect position, the candidate nominated must have completed or be completing two years of service on the Board of Directors. The President-Elect shall succeed to the office of the President upon the completion of the President’s term of office.
