The Polls Are Almost Open!

As many of you know, IIDA Southern California Chapter is extremely active throughout the entire year and an important milestone happens every July, when new Executive Board members are sworn in, and officially take on their roles and responsibilities (each Board position is a two-year term).  However, leading up to that point is a lot of hard work as well as vetting by a nominating committee. After the nominating committee is in place, the Chapter invites members to apply for open Board positions.  Colleagues either submit potential candidates (you must be an IIDA member to serve on the Board) or any IIDA member can submit himself or herself as a candidate. Once the candidates have been vetted and confirmed, a ballot with the proposed slate is submitted to our Chapter Professional IIDA members. And, every vote counts!

So, it’s that time of the year again and soon every Professional member will be receiving a notification that the polls are open!  It’s easy….an online voting ballot lives on our website so that our Professional members can easily access the proposed slate and the bios of each proposed Board member. There’s an easy-to-fill-out online form as well. One click to get there, one click to cast your vote!

One of the great benefits of your membership in IIDA Southern California Chapter is the opportunity to participate in the leadership of the Chapter. Whether it’s on the Chapter Board of Directors or as the Chair of one of the City Center Committees, great leadership opportunities abound.  Keep a look out for the upcoming request to Rock the SoCal Vote!
