IICRC Election Process

How it Works: IICRC Elections

Not sure what the IICRC election process entails? Here’s a little background:

Who’s in charge?
The IICRC is managed by its Board of Directors, which is comprised of 15 industry leaders elected by the IICRC’s shareholders. Its function is to represent the various interests of the registrants while leading the direction of the organization.

Within the Board of Directors is the Executive Committee, or Officers, which includes: the Chairman, First Vice President, Second Vice President, Third Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary and Past Chairman. The Executive Committee helps run the day-to-day operations of the organization, and together with the Board, represents the interests of all IICRC registrants.

Each major decision made within the organization is brought before both the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors.
How is the Board elected?
Each fall, the IICRC holds an election for open Board positions, and the existing Board holds an election for its Executive Committee positions.

In July of each year, the IICRC Vetting Committee begins soliciting nominations for the next year’s Board. After much vetting, the committee announces the final candidates to the Shareholders who then vote to elect the new members during the fall shareholders meeting. Following the election, the newly elected Board then elects its officers.

What does the Board do?
The IICRC Board of Directors meets throughout the year and is tasked with the responsibility of helping shape future policies of the organization and uphold the standards that shape the industry. Additionally, the Board must be compliant with the IICRC organizational documents, ethics and conflict of interest, confidentiality policies and all other regulations of the IICRC.

The Institute also has a CEO and President who report to the Board and its Chairman. Working with the Board, the President actively provides overall leadership, determines direction and helps set policy for the IICRC. Additionally, the President manages the day-to-day operations of the Institute as well as the Global Resource Center staff.
