Elections: Elections are the formal process IIBA Chapters use to determine who manages and governs the Chapter in the form of the Board of Directors. As a membership organization, it is necessary for Chapters to conduct elections for the positions of its Board of Directors to give its members a voice in the programs and future strategic direction of the Chapter. The best practice is to have elections run under the direction of an Elections Committee.
Volunteers: The Volunteer Committee is established to assure expectations are set for every volunteer that is mutually beneficial to both the volunteer and the Chapter.
