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

Six of the board’s 13 seats are up for election this year. Four incumbents decided not to run for new terms. Members will also be voting for two members of the Contest Committee, which judges the IRE Awards. To learn more about the candidates, click here.

After your vote is cast, it cannot be changed. Please be mindful that candidates for the IRE board and the contest committee have the option of joining the race up to June 14 (5 pm CDT).

If you’ll be joining us in Houston for the 2019 IRE Conference, you’ll have a chance to hear from the board candidates in person. A short forum will be held at 6:15 p.m. on Friday, June 14, immediately following the Showcase Panel. You’ll still have a day to vote online after the forum.

Voting closes at 6 p.m. CDT on Saturday, June 15. Results will be announced shortly afterward during the annual IRE membership meeting and later posted online. To learn more about the voting process, click here.
