ESIP Elections Timeline
To better align our organizational timing, the ESIP Board voted to shift leadership elections from December to June with new leaders taking office at the close of the July meeting.
Email Susan Shingledecker if you are interested in participating in the Nominations Committee – starting soon – or have questions about the election process.
Current leadership will stay in their positions until July 2023. New leaders can then do budgeting early in their terms during August and September in time for the Board's annual budget review in October.
