Ballot versus Automatic Confirmation

Candidate Qualifications & Considerations
Please consider the following in making your nominations.
  • First and foremost, only nominate individuals who have indicated a willingness to invest significant time and effort into being a Trustee. These are working positions of responsibility.

  • Ideally, Trustees attend an annual Board of Trustees meeting held to coincide with the annual conference and two mid-year meetings (one usually in London in February coinciding with the ICE tradeshow and one usually in either May or June coinciding with either the GREF or NAGRA conference). Trustees will also participate in numerous email exchanges and multiple conference calls. Those unable to attend the meetings in person are expected to join by phone.
  • Think about geographical and membership representation in making your nominations. For example, does the individual you plan to nominate come from an already substantially represented region?
  • In order to make a nomination, the proposer, the seconder and the individual being nominated must be paid members of IAGR in good standing.
