In response to its formal Call for Nominations issued to SIA members last fall, the Nominations Committee received a significant number of impressive applications for consideration. The committee carefully reviewed each application guided by criteria that emphasized experience with advocacy/public policy and human resources/diversity, equity and inclusion; business acumen; involvement within SIA; and passion for the association and the industry. SIA members who are unable to attend The Advance or who wish to vote on the Board of Directors nominees before the event can use the proxy voting form to submit their votes.
