Executive Board Nominations/Elections

In the past, the election of the IMCAT Executive Board of Officers has been held at the general meeting on the second day of the yearly conference. The Executive Board of Officers includes: President, President Elect, Treasurer and Secretary. 

In review of the organization's Bylaws it was discovered that the election of the Boards Executive Officers is a function of the Board of Directors and is not held to a general election. IMCAT Bylaws Section 5.04 states:

5.04 Election of Officers. The Board of Directors shall elect its officers at its first meeting following the annual membership meeting.

A further review of the Bylaws determined the qualifications for becoming an officer of the board. To be considered for an officer position, a board member must have served at least one year on the Board of Directors. IMCAT Bylaws Section 6.07 states:

6.07 Qualification. An officer must have completed one year as a director of the Association and be serving on the Board of Directors at the time of his or her election.

Starting the fiscal year 2021, the IMCAT Board of Directors will take nominations from the Board and then elect its officers at the designated time according to the stated Bylaws. Nominations will be taken at the November meeting and votes will be taken at a designated time to be determined by the Board.
