Elections for open positions on the IACAT Board are being held this June. There are three positions up for re-election: Treasurer, Secretary, and North America representative. A call for nominations sent out in May received only one nomination for Treasurer, two for Secretary, and two for North America representative. Brief bios for the candidates up for election are below; because there is only one candidate for Treasurer, no election is necessary.
