The 2019 SHS Section election will be run exclusively online in conjunction with the IAFC election; the voting period opens on May 8.
All open board positions in 2019 are for at-large director seats. New board members will begin their three-year terms at FRI 2019 in Atlanta, GA.
Eligibility for Office
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.
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.
