In preparation for the 2021 election, your SHS Section is seeking candidates for three at-large director positions. All positions will begin in July 2021 at Fire-Rescue International and are three-year terms.
At-large Director Eligibility:
At least six of the nine at–large directors of the Section’s Board of Directors must be non-retired, current Regular Section and IAFC members at the time of their candidacy and, if elected, must maintain IAFC and Section memberships for the duration of their term. No more than three of the at-large directors may be retired chief officers. There is currently one retired At-Large Director.
Any at-large director of the Section’s board who retires while in office shall be permitted to remain in office for the duration of his/her term as long as the number of retired directors on the board does not exceed three. If a retirement causes this number to rise to four, the director shall remain in office until the next regular annual meeting of the Section, when a new director shall be elected by the membership.
Section members who are Associate members of the IAFC may not serve on the Section’s Board of Directors.
