2024 Nominations: General Information

Following is the information about the DAMA International 2024 Board of Directors nominations.

Please carefully review the following information before submitting a nomination.

Nominations and Voting Requirements

Nominations and voting for members of the Board of Directors is by chapter and governed by by-laws section 3.7.3. Only chapters in "Active Status" are eligible to participate in this voting process.

As DAMA-I has waived Chapter affiliation fees for 2024, the only requirement for "Active Status" is to submit the 2024 Affiliation Agreement by 01 July 2024 to participate in this year's nominations and voting process. The election Committee will publish a list of Chapters eligible to nominate a candidate, and it will affirm whether the individual nominated meets the minimum eligibility requirements set out in by-laws section 3.6.1 and 3.6.2.

The by-laws section 3.6.1 and 3.6.2 set these specific LIMITS on nominations:
