Dear IVETA Member,
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt many aspects of our personal and professional lives. To this end, the IVETA balloting process was not immune to some of these disruptions. We experienced some delays in receiving and sending ballots. Upon consultation and approval from your Executive Committee, the nomination committee extended the deadline to cast a ballot from July 31 to August 31, 2020. Therefore, after a couple of months of balloting, the time has come to share the results with our membership.
Here is your new slate of elected officers beginning on Jan 1, 2021 and ending on Dec 31, 2022:
