Board of Governors - Election

The Annual Election of the Governors and Officers takes place prior to the Annual Meeting which is typically held in conjunction with the Annual Convention.  The IASB Nominating Committee identifies potential candidates for the Board and prepares a Slate of Candidates for distribution to the Voting Representative for each membership approximately 30 days prior to the Annual Meeting (see Election Notice below). 


Qualifications & Expectations

To be qualified to file as a Board Governor Candidate:
  • Candidate must be the owner or an employee of a Company/Entity that is a General Member. 
  • The Company/Entity must have been a General Member in good standing with IASB for at least one (1) year prior to the filing.

Terms begin the 1st of the month following the annual meeting and are 3 years in length.  Governors are expected to attend two (2) in-person meetings a year (one in the Spring and one in the Summer) as well as meetings held via conference call during the remainder of the year.  Governors are responsible for their own travel and lodging expenses for the in-person meeting with the exception of lodging at the Summer Board Meeting which is provided by IASB.  Serving as a Governor is on a volunteer-basis without renumeration for their time or expenses (other than expenses approved by the board). In addition to providing leadership and strategic positioning for the organization, Governors participate in the governance and oversight of the organization.  In some cases, Governors also participate in operational functions for the organization to assist in realizing the Mission of the organization.  Governors are expected to abide by the United States laws and respective state laws governing nonprofit corporations as well as the Bylaws and Policies and Procedures of the organization. 


Election Notice & Ballot

Approximately 30 days prior to the Annual Meeting, the Election Notice is emailed to the voting representative for each member.  The notice contains a link to the electronic ballot.  Voting Representatives may request a copy of the notice be mailed by sending an email to or contacting the IASB Office (this benefit is available only during the 30 day time frame).

Owners and Employees of General Members may indicate they are interest in filing as a candidate for Governor by completing the Board Candidate Interest Form (online form) by December 1st.
