Call for IRAA Officer Candidates

The call for candidates in the 2021 IRAA Officer Elections is now open! IRAA members that are interested in serving as a part of the IRAA Executive Board can declare their intentions by completing and submitting the Candidate Questionnaire and a Headshot/photo or by filling out our Google form before May 22, 2021.

This year there are seven positions that will be voted upon by the IRAA membership. These offices are:

Vice President
Central District Representative
Northern District Representative
North-Eastern District Representative
Southern District Representative

The offices of President and PR Secretary are not part of this election cycle. For details about the available offices, please reference the IRAA Bylaws.

If you are interested in holding one of the available offices, please complete the Candidate Questionnaire and a headshot/photo and email everything back to by 11:59 p.m. on May 22nd. The candidates for each position will be posted to the website on May 28th. Elections will take place at the IRAA annual meeting at the Illinois Regional Convention/Honors Institute. You do not need to be present to be a candidate, nor to vote in the election. IRAA will host the annual meeting through a Zoom Meeting on June 6th at 1pm.

We will be scheduling recorded interviews for the candidates and posting them on our YouTube channel for our members to “get to know the Candidates.”
