Board and Staff

The IBNA Board of Directors is elected by the membership of the organization at the annual convention.  Each board member serves a one-year term.

Three officers are elected,  the president, president-elect, and past president, who make up the executive committee.  You must be serving on the board to be elected to an officer position.

Board members meet quarterly and select the site of the convention,  and plan the various convention sessions based on trends in the industry and input from members.
