SIR and SIR Foundation 2020-2021 call for nominations

Open leadership positions

SIR and SIR Foundation encourages SIR members with an interest in serving in one of these positions to review the nominations materials and to complete a nominations application. This is an effective way to communicate your interest in a leadership position. Each year the SIR and SIR Foundation Nominating Committees carefully evaluate the nominations based on the current and future leadership needs. There are many qualified candidates who apply. For this reason, individuals may apply or be nominated several times before selection as a candidate.
