The work of the 2019-2020 Nominations Committee in recruiting candidates and stewarding applications through the nominations process is greatly appreciated. This is a time-intensive procedure that involves a great deal of thoughtful study and identification of future leaders of the Institute.  In lue of meetings at the National Conference, the committee completed their work over the course of many online meetings to determine a slate for this election. The Board of Directors thanks this Committee for their work.

Additional candidates can be added to the ballot by petition signed by 50 USITT members. For information on the process for petitions or nominations, please e-mail the Board Secretary, Paul Brunner.  Deadline for adding names to the ballot is September 1.
