Serving on the Board of Directors for the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI) provides individuals with an opportunity to participate in setting policy and direction for the organization that represents our profession. Those who have previously served on the Board found the experience to be rewarding, challenging, and fun. Past appointees have gained a great deal from the experience.

The nomination process and election for the ISPI Board of Directors occurs annually, and includes both the President-Elect and Director positions. Each term begins and ends at the annual ISPI conference.  The number of Directors nominated and elected vary by year depending upon the number of open seats at the conclusion of the current electoral year.

The newly-elected members will join the President, the Immediate Past President, the continuing Directors, and the Executive Director (non-voting) who make up the nine member Board. The President, President-Elect, Director/Treasurer, and Executive Director make up the ISPI Executive Committee.

President-Elect (4 year term)
The President-Elect of ISPI serves for a one-year term as President-Elect, followed by a two-year term as President, and a fourth year as Immediate Past President. During his or her tenure, the President-Elect's efforts are directed to assuming the Presidency, and assignments are designed in preparation for that transition. The President-Elect serves to provide continuity of programs, goals, and objectives in keeping with policy established by the Board of Directors.  See job description: President-Elect.

Director (2 year term)
Each Director serves as a leader in motivating support for established policy, serves to develop new policy, and serves to obtain support for ISPI's programs. A Director should provide an objective point of view on issues affecting the membership and the profession, which should facilitate a thorough discussion and analysis of each problem considered by the Board, followed by responsible action and support of the actions taken by a majority Board vote.  See job description: Director.
