Board election​

As noted in the IS-MPMI Bylaws​, eligible voting members of IS-MPMI may cast their vote for President Elect on the Board of Directors. The elected individual will begin their term immediately following the election. ​Eligible voting members were emailed an electronic ballot on April 2. ​Voting is open through April 22, 2024 (midnight Central).

Note if you didn't receive the election ​email, it may have been caught in your server's spam filters. Check Clutter, Junk, Quarantine, etc., and ask your IT department whether it got caught in server firewall. You can check Survey Monkey's Help page for IPs and domains your IT department can whitelist to ensure you receive it. 

Contact Linda Schmitt at IS-MPMI​ with ballot inquiries. ​​
