IOA Seeks Nominations for 2018 Board of Directors

The International Ombudsman Association is seeking nomination for Directors who will serve a three-year term starting in April 2018.  There will be six open seats, meaning that some of the current Board members will not seek reelection or that the Board is expanding.  Only current IOA members may nominate individuals before the October 20, 2017 deadline. 

The IOA announcement provides the following guidance for nominators:

  • IOA has fulfilled the maximum allowable number of Directors who are not in full compliance of the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics as stipulated by Article IV of the Bylaws.
  • There is no Retired Member Director currently serving on the Board.
  • Directors must be able to serve on the Board, be engaged and attend monthly meetings, serve as a liaison to an IOA committee, and fully participate in Board activities.
  • A nominee is not eligible to run if his or her term would coincide with the term of a current Director from the same institution or organization.
