This notice is to announce the 2020 election process for the 2021 ITEA Board of Directors and to advise the ITEA membership of the nominating process.
The purpose of the Board of Directors is to undertake management of the business and affairs of the Association. The goal of the elections process is to ensure the Board represents a broad spectrum of the T&E community; a mirror of the functional diversity of the community to include members of the technical, management, policy, and analysis sectors.
There are two categories comprising the Board of Directors, Elected members and Appointed members.
- Elected Members: The number of elected Directors of the Association is currently eleven. An elected member will serve for a period of three (3) years. An elected Director may not serve for more than two (2) consecutive terms.
- Appointed Members: For the purposes of diversification, the Board of Directors may appoint up to four additional Board members for terms of one (1) year; renewable no more than two (2) times.
For the 2020 elections, the Committee will seek candidates to fill the following vacancies:
- Elected Members: Three (3) Positions
- Appointed Members: Not to exceed four (4) Positions
Elected directors will each serve 3-year terms from November 2020 through September 2023, and will be presented to the membership during the 2020 Annual Symposium, which will be held September 15-18, 2020 at the Wyndham Orlando Resort International Drive in Orlando, FL. Any Director appointed by the Board will serve for one year (November 2020 through September 2021).
The Elections Committee, a standing committee of the Board chaired by Mr. Matt Reynolds, oversees the nomination and election of Directors. Nominations are openly solicited from ITEA Chapters, the Board of Directors, the Senior Advisory Board, Corporate members and Individual ITEA members. The Elections Committee will follow the ITEA Bylaws and established policies of the Association in evaluating nominations for the Board of Directors and developing the slate for balloting.
Nominations for elected or appointed positions are to be submitted via the nomination form – ITEA 2021 Board Of Directors Nomination Form.
Nominations must be submitted no later than May 15, 2020, in order to be considered.
Please send completed nomination forms to James Gaidry, ITEA Executive Director,
