2021 Elections

Election Information

The IAAO election will take place electronically from November 1-15. Regular members, in good standing, will be able to vote for the 2022 Regular Board Members and Officer positions and Associate members, in good standing, will vote for an Associate Board Member. 

The IAAO Governance Committee proposed amendments to the IAAO Bylaws and the IAAO Board of Directors approved its release to be voted on by regular members. The amendments were compiled by the Governance Committee and the Board to reflect changes made to the IAAO Mission Statement, Code of Ethics, Ethics enforcement, and the separation of the Secretary Treasurer responsibilities to assign the Treasurer responsibilities to the President-Elect.
