Deadline: Friday, March 27
Your IABC Canada East Region (CER) supports chapter leaders from Newfoundland and Labrador to Ontario. We create structures and programs to support and help chapter leaders deliver value to their members and we represent chapter interests to IABC International.
If you are an experienced chapter volunteer looking for new opportunities to be involved with the direction of IABC, this may be the next stage in your IABC career. It’s a chance to serve with a great team that includes experienced leaders from across six provinces, and all our chapter presidents. It’s also an opportunity to work from a different strategic perspective (of IABC).
The process is now under way to select our board for the year July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016. Here’s the current composition of our team:
|Board position||Term/commitment||Current status|
|Chair||3 years total – 1 year vice chair, 1 year chair, 1 year past chair||Automatic succession|

The coming term will be an exciting one as we use our intellectual, collaborative and financial resources to create new ways to support our chapters. It will be even more exciting if you are part of our team.
