With the addition of new regions and the retirement of current board members, there are fourteen positions that will be open on the IECA Board of Directors this year. Our three single-county regions (Dallas, Polk, and Story) have been combined to jointly share one board member representative.
Nominations are now open until May 30. In order to avoid large turnovers on the board in the future, the positions being voted on this year will have staggered terms as noted below.
