According to the February 2010 newsletter for the International Ombudsman Institute North American Region, members at the IOI conference at the Stockholm last summer raised a concern about the process of electing directors. In particular, regional members who were unable to attend in person were ineligible to vote for IOI directors. In response to these concerns, the Rules of the North American Region have been amended to permit non-attending members to vote, resulting in elections that are more reflective of the members’ preferences. The newsletter also said that the next North American Regional Meeting will coincide with the USOA Annual Conference in Dayton, Ohio, October 6-8, 2010. (IOI North American Region Newsletter.)
