Board of Directors

Officers and Directors

Service on the SIR Board of Directors is a high honor and great responsibility. Board members develop strategic plans, lead the activities of the association and ensure its financial viability. Board members represent the needs of the entire association above their own or their organizations.

Board nominations typically occur August-September and are voted on at the Annual Membership Meeting at the SIR Annual Conference.

Constitution and By-Laws
