Board Election

In May, the terms of two current REN-ISAC Board Directors will expire, and an election will be held to fill these seats. The Membership Committee will again facilitate the nomination and election process this year.  Directors elected this year will serve a three-year term, beginning June 1, 2018 and ending May 31, 2020.

We invite you to nominate yourself or others to run for an open Board seat.  Both Management and Member Representatives, including the Directors whose terms are currently expiring, are eligible to run for the Board.  The nomination window ends at 8:00pm EST on February 23. If a candidate is nominated by someone else, that candidate must agree to run for the seat in order to complete the nomination.  The Membership Committee will present the slate of candidates to membership in early March, and voting will commence thereafter.
