The 2018 Nominating Committee received nearly two dozen expressions of interest from members seeking to serve on the TIA Board. The Committee reviewed the applications and will work with those not nominated to find ways in which they can express their desire to serve the Association and the industry. For 2018, the Committee makes the following report to the membership. This is an interim report, because the TIA Bylaws allow members not nominated to be nominated by petition of five percent (86) of the membership. The Bylaws allow for 30 days from this initial report for this process. Ballots will be sent via email to the member primary contact on March 7, 2018 with results announced during the Opening Session of the TIA Conference.
