Nomination process

Stand for election – nominations are now open

Nominations are open to fill three posts on the Chartered IIA's Council of Directors. Voting members of the institute are invited to stand for election. Elected Council directors will take office in October 2017 for a term of up to three years.

  1. Nominees must be voting members and each must be proposed by two voting members. These can be on separate forms.
  2. Council members (with the exception of the Chief Executive) must not receive payments for work undertaken for the IIA or be partners or company directors of any organisation that has contracts with the IIA. If the person that you are nominating is in this situation, he/she will not be eligible for election.
  3. If more than three candidates are nominated for the posts, a ballot of all voting members will be conducted. 

Please read the regulations and code of conduct policy

Closing date for nominations: 5 May 2017

Candidate statement

Candidates are asked to prepare a short personal statement supporting their candidacy and including details of how they meet the requirements of being a Council member.

Reference should be made to the requirements of the role which shows the essential and desirable attributes

Failure to submit this by the deadline will not invalidate a nomination but no candidate statement or biographical details will be published if received after the deadline.

The candidate statement must be no longer than 250 words. Statements exceeding 250 words may be returned to the candidates for editing (if this is possible before the deadline) or simply cut down to the limit. This may mean that only the first 250 words are published.

Candidates must download and complete a candidate statement and candidate agreement. Nominating members should complete the nomination form.
