Starting today IRE members can vote online for the IRE Board of Directors. Ballots will be sent to the primary e-mail as listed in your membership profile.

So far seven people have declared candidacy; six of the board’s 13 seats are up for election this year. To learn more about the candidates, click here. No one has declared candidacy for the Contest Committee. If you’re going to the 2015 IRE Conference in Philadelphia, be sure to stop by the candidate forum at 6 p.m. on June 5, immediately following the Showcase Panel. We’re hoping conference attendees will wait to vote until they’ve had a chance to hear from the candidates.

Elections for the IRE Board of Directors involve electronic voting only, and the polls will be open until 6:30 p.m. on June 6. To learn more about the voting process, click here.
