All director positions on the IAMU Board are “at large”, but we do consider a variety of criteria when evaluating potential candidates in an effort to maintain a balance of perspectives. In doing so we will consider many criteria including but not limited to: educational background, work experience, gender, race, utility location, type of utility represented, and size of community represented. Terms are three years. The preferred candidate would be willing to consider multiple terms, as well as executive committee assignments. The current vacancy is for a term that ends in February 2020. We anticipate additional openings in early 2019 as well.
While directors can leave at any time we are particularly interested in candidates that, after some time on the board, are willing to consider serving on the executive board, ultimately culminating in being president.
The board typically meets the second Thursday of the odd numbered months in Ankeny from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. There are eleven members of the board. While in person attendance is encouraged and preferred, some electronic attendance is permissible.
