IOA Nominations & Governance Committee

About the Nominations & Governance Committee and Their Mission

The IOA Nominations and Governance Committee (NGC) is responsible for ongoing review and recommendations to enhance the quality and future viability of the IOA Board of Directors, including potential revisions to the IOA bylaws related to governance.  The NGC also oversees the annual nomination and election process for the IOA Board of Directors, according to the requirements of the IOA bylaws, as well as the annual selection of officers.  The NGC is charged to advise the Board on processes and candidates to fill Board vacancies. The NGC also manages the nomination and review of the selection process for Distinguished Emeritus members, and submits a list of eligible nominees to the IOA Board for their decision.

Priorities 

The work of the Nominations and Elections Committee will be subsumed by a new committee in 2017: the Nominations and Governance Committee. The NGC, in addition to managing the Board election and Distinguished Emeritus nomination, will assist in the selection of Board officers and provide ongoing review and recommendations to enhance the quality and future viability of the Board. This includes making potential revisions to the IOA bylaws related to governance, as well as the annual selection of officers. Due to other commitments and length of service on NEC, current NEC members will not continue on as members of the NGC.
