board of directors election

Voting criteria

The IRA Board of Directors is made up of representatives from member organizations that have applied as Board candidates and have been elected to the Board by a membership vote.  All IRA members in good standing are eligible to vote.  A member in good standing is a business, organization, agency or individual whose dues are current. The number of ballots each member organization may cast depends on the membership category for which current dues are paid:

  • Lifetime & Large Business (7 ballots)
  • Small Business (5 ballots)
  • Nonprofit/Government/Education (3 ballots)
  • Individuals & Micro Business (1 ballot)


Each voting representative may cast a single ballot on behalf of their member organization.  A signed ballot must be submitted via this form. If voting representatives of a member organization cast more ballots than their membership category allows, the ballots will be validated using the date/time the ballot was recorded.
