Nomination to the IPLOCA Board of Directors takes place every year at the annual convention as seats become vacant. Most nominated board members serve for two years and their second year is also confirmed during the nomination meeting.

This year, so as to comply with safety measures, the appointment process will take place remotely via the Zoom audio & video conferencing application. Key Represenatives will be sent an invitation to participate.

Owners or senior executives of Regular Members and Associate Members are eligible for election to the Board of Directors, as per Articles 9.3 and 9.4 of the IPLOCA By-laws.

All Regular Member and Associate Member candidates for vacant seats on the Board of Directors are required to review the Duties and Commitments of Board Members.
