- Notice of Meeting / Elections
- Appointment of Nominations Committee
- Call for Nominations
As required by the by-laws of the International Shippers Association (ISA), herein is formal notice that there will be a meeting of the ISA members to be held during the upcoming 54th IAM Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.
Each year, the ISA members are required to hold formal elections to determine individuals who will serve on the ISA Board of Directors.
This year, the positions of Treasurer and Member-At-Large will be competed.
Of the incumbents, Lucrecia Sikora, the current Treasurer, does intend to run again for the same position. The Member-At-Large slot is currently vacant.
The ISA by-laws provide for staggered elections; therefore, the positions of Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary were competed last year and will be up for election again next year in 2017.
Note: The ISA by-laws provide for the ability to present nominations from the floor; however, candidates must be qualified for the positions to which they are nominated. Each member of the ISA Board of Directors must be a member of the International Association of Movers (IAM) and the Board must consist of a balance of no fewer than two IAM Governing members and two IAM Core members. The position of Chairperson shall rotate every two years between a Governing and a Core member.
The ISA Membership Meeting and Elections will take place on Sunday, October 23rd between the hours of 11:00 am and 12:00 Noon at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.
To facilitate the nomination of candidates, the ISA Chair, Mark Nash, has delegated to me the responsibility and we have appointed the following individuals to serve as this year's Nominations Committee:
Mike Richardson -
Woody Zobel -
Should you wish to have your name placed into nomination for any of the two positions up for election, please contact a member of the ISA Nominations Committee no later than Friday, July 22.
Each candidate will need to provide a personal profile and color photo (head-shot, of high resolution for print--no smart phone photos please) to be published in the September/October "Annual Meeting" issue of The Portal magazine. The profiles and photos should be sent to The Portal Editor Joyce Dexter at The firm deadline for submission of this information is Monday, August 1.
Please feel free to contact me and/or a member of the Nominations Committee should you have any questions on the nomination process or the election procedures.
