Election Process

The Chapter is governed by a Board of Directors. All Board of Director positions are elected by IIDA Virginia/West Virginia Chapter Professional Members and serve, at minimum, a one-year term, with two|three-year terms as listed. A Nominating Committee of IIDA Members is appointed to assist in revising nominations and selecting candidates for open board positions. Members of the Nominating Committee sign an Oath of Confidentiality before researching each nominee’s eligibility and interest in serving on the Board of Directors. Once candidate research has been conducted, a Multiple Slate of candidates will be provided to the current Board of Directors for review. When multiple candidates are slated for the same position the Nominating Committee will provide their recommendation to the Board of Directors for the most qualified candidate to fill the position. The Board of Directors will use the Multiple Slate and Nominating Committee recommendations to determine a Single Slate of candidates.

Once a Single Slate of candidates is approved by the current Board of Directors it will be distributed to all Virginia/West Virginia Chapter Professional Members in for final approval. The newly elected Board of Directors will be announced at the IIDA Virginia/West Virginia Chapter Annual Dinner in June and will take office on July 1, 2016.
