IFAI seeks board applicants

IFAI is now accepting candidate applications for two three-year positions on the IFAI board of directors. To be considered, a candidate must be employed by either an end product manufacturer or supplier member in good standing; submit written confirmation that he or she wishes to be considered; and complete an application form and return it to Leadership Development Committee chair Peter F. McKernan, IFM, by May 28. 

Candidates are evaluated on several criteria including previous volunteer leadership experience, length of time in the industry, the position the applicant currently holds in his or her company, policy governance and strategic planning experience, and strengths or talents that could be beneficial to the board and the association.  

The committee will meet in June to consider the applications, and the membership will be notified of the committee’s recommendation soon after. If you have applied before but were not chosen, you are encouraged to apply again. It is common for applicants to apply several times before they are nominated to a board position. The talents and expertise the Leadership Development Committee looks for changes from year to year. We appreciate your interest and look forward to your participation in the governing process of this association.
