New ISI District Election Process
In an effort to be more inclusive, the ISI Board of Directors is implementing a new process for the election of District Representatives. Starting in 2015, the elections for district representatives will be conducted electronically: odd number districts in odd numbered years and even numbered districts in even numbered years.
- All Voting Representatives within a district will receive an email with a link to nominate one person as their district director. They will be given 10 days to submit a nomination. While both administrative member voting representatives (if there are two) will receive the nomination email, only the first nomination from each will be accepted.
- Names of nominees who receive only one nomination will be sent to all district voting representatives to be seconded. They will have five days to second a nomination.
- After all of the seconded nominations are in, the ISI office will ask each nominee if he/she is willing to serve. Each nominee will have 10 days to respond; a non-response will be taken as a no.
- The ISI office will verify qualifications for each nominee willing to serve and send electronic ballots to all voting representatives in their district. Voting will take place over the following 10 days.
- If no one nominee receives over 50% of the vote, a run-off election will be held between the top two candidates, or more if there are ties. Five days will be allowed for the run-off election
- The entire election process will take 65 days, beginning March 2 through May 5.
- The ISI office will verify final results, which will be announced at the ISI Conference & Trade Show.
