IFE Election of Members to the Board of Directors
USA Branch member Bruce Varner is a candidate.
This week you should be receiving your ballot for the IFE Elections of Members to the Board of Directors. I am one of the candidates standing for election with the full support of the USA- Branch Board. I have made appeals for votes to the Branches in the UK and around the world. There are three of us standing for the two open positions. Ben Bradford is from London and will likely carry the votes in the UK. Andrew Sharrad, is from Australia, the largest IFE Branch. Both Ben and Andrew are excellent candidates. I believe that I have support to pick up many UK votes, the New Zealand Branch Board has endorsed me with their membership. I will still need substantial votes returned from the USA Branch members to prevail in the election. I believe it is very important to maintain a North American presence on the Board.
Please Vote – Varner as your first choice, make the decision between the remaining two excellent candidates and return your Ballot to IFE Office before the July 5th deadline. It will require an International Postage stamp ($1.15) from the post office to return and will need to be mailed as soon as possible.
If you are also returning a Proxy Form it must be mailed in the separate envelope and also requires an International Postage stamp.
Thank you for your support, your membership in IFE and your dedication to Fire Engineering.
Bruce H. Varner, CFFireE
IFE – USA Branch
