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.

Seven of the board’s 13 seats are up for election this year. 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 until 6 p.m. (EDT) on June 19.

Although the IRE national conference has been postponed until late August, IRE will follow the same calendar as it has in recent years connected to board elections. As is customary, a candidates forum will be held at 6 p.m. EDT on Friday, June 19. Electronic online voting will be open until 5 p.m. EDT on Saturday, June 20. Results will be announced at the end of the IRE annual membership meeting, which is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. EDT on June 20. The candidates forum and IRE annual membership meeting will be conducted via a Zoom webinar.
