Each year the SBE membership elects members to serve on the national Board of Directors, the governing body of the society. This includes all four officers for one-year terms and half the 12 directors for two-year terms.
The election takes place July 17 through August 19. Balloting will be via the election website, except for those members who have opted out of electronic voting this year or who have not provided the SBE national office with their email address. They will receive their ballots through the mail.
The Nominations Committee is chaired by Jim Leifer, CPBE. Committee members are Marcelo Sanchez, CPBE, Miramar, FL; Scott Fybush, Rochester, NY; and Steve Brown, CPBE, CBNT, Appleton, WI.
