  12. 12. 12<br />Nominations Process <br />We received a large number of applications for the four open board positions. After a thorough review of the applications, the Nominations Committee identified three basic categories: <br />1.  Candidates who are ineligible. IIBA Bylaws prevent anyone from being a Director of the Board unless they have been an IIBA member for at least six months. Exceptions were granted if the individual had a unique skill set that would benefit the composition of the board.<br />2.  Candidates who are eligible but whose qualifications are met by an existing Director. These candidates were asked to withdraw their nomination.<br />3.  Candidates who are eligible and whose qualifications enable a well composed board of diverse and complementary skills. These candidates were interviewed by the Nominating Committee and the slate of candidates was selected from this group.<br />© International Institute of Business Analysis<br />
