The Nominations and Elections Committee is seeking nominations from the membership to fill vacancies on the Board of Directors. The individuals elected as Directors will commence their terms of office in September 2021 at the close of the fall annual Board meeting. Each of the Directors will serve a three-year term. Detailed job descriptions are available here. Key considerations for nominees should include years of service and past contributions to IACET, as well as the ability to lead IACET in the years to come.  Board members actively participate on and chair committees and task forces, provide leadership and vision to develop and implement policy and projects, oversee the financial health of the organization, and represent IACET to the public.
