Nominations are open for the IA Institute 2011-2013 Board

August is always an important month here at the IAI because it's also election time. This year, you (you are a member, aren't you?) will be voting to fill three spots on the Board of Directors.

Based upon our experience during the past nine years of operation, we recommend the following criteria for consideration:

  • Commitment. Candidates should have demonstrated real commitment through action to the IA Institute and to the information architecture community.
  • Leadership. Candidates should possess the ability to motivate, organize and lead diverse, international teams of volunteers.
  • Relationships. Candidates should have solid professional networks and the ability to build bridges between disciplines, cultures and organizations

If you'd like to nominate someone, please take a moment to visit the IAI Board Of Directors Nomination Form. We'll be accepting nominations until August 29th. Nominees then have until September 9th to accept or decline the nomination and submit a position statement. We'll all vote between September 10 and September 16. And the new and old Board will meet jointly for the first time on September 20th.

For more details, please visit the Election 2011 page.
