Elections this year will be held three Director positions, each with a term of three years. Nominations (including self nominations) for these open positions are encouraged and should be sent to a member of the Nominations Committee by Tuesday, September 15th.

As described in the elections procedures of the IRIS By Laws, the Nominations Committee "shall prepare a slate of one or more nominees for each Director position to be filled.” Ballots with a list of candidates and details on the voting procedure will be sent to all Members Representatives in early November. Results of the election will be announced during the virtual IRIS Membership Meeting in early December.
