CEDIA is now taking nominations for the 2018-2019 Board of Directors. The Board governs the association's activities and represents the residential technology profession to the outside world. There are five open board positions for the 2018-2019 term.

"CEDIA members have the opportunity to drive the future direction of the association by participating in the nomination and election process. The CEDIA community is unique, and we rely on our members to identify the leaders who will provide thoughtful insight and vision to the organization," says Dave Humphries, CEDIA Governance Committee Chair.

CEDIA members will vote to fill three elected director positions. Members who are employees of a member company may be nominated, vetted by the Governance Committee, and proposed as candidates for the global membership vote. The vacancies this election cycle may be filled by CEDIA members outside of the EMEA region. Elected board members will be announced immediately after the election and seated on January 1 2018.

All other member types, including manufacturers and service providers and additional Home Technology Professionals are eligible for appointment to the Board of Directors. There are two open appointed positions for the 2018-2019 term - one to be filled from the EMEA region, and the other from the entire global membership. The CEDIA Governance Committee reviews candidates based on the skills needed and makes a recommendation to the Board, who vote to approve the appointment. This process runs in parallel with the election, with the appointments occurring at the January 2018 board meeting.

When CEDIA and CEDIA EMEA merged into one global organisation in January 2017, the makeup of the board was tailored with regional representation that reflected the geographical density of the membership. In keeping with the terms of the global integration, the 2018 board composition, including existing and new directors, will reflect one-third EMEA directors and the remaining directors representing members across the globe.

To nominate candidates, individuals must fill out the nomination form found at www.cedia.net/cedia-membership/election. Nominations will be accepted until August 7. Voting will be open between September 5 to October 16.
