In 2019, IFE’s membership will elect its Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary.
Nominations are now open for terms of office beginning in March of 2019.
The IFE officers—the board of directors—meets monthly via conference call, and works via e-mail between the monthly teleconferences and while conducting committee work. During the past year, IFE has held special one-day or two-day officers’ meetings at convenient locations, but the only regularly-scheduled in-person officers’ meeting is in conjunction with the IFE Annual General Meeting, scheduled to take place in conjunction with the Center for Public Safety Excellence (CPSE) annual meeting, generally held in or around March of each year. Duties and responsibilities of these positions are described in a document available for download here.
The 2019 Nominations Committee invites you to let us know if you’d be interested in being considered for an officer position—or if you know another member that you think would be well-suited for consideration for an officer position. Either way, please let us know by replying to this e-mail at your earliest convenience and in accordance with the guidance given below.
Here’s how to get your hat into the ring—or nominate another IFE member you think would be a good IFE officer:
