Board of Directors
The IORC Board of Directors consists of four Officers, two At-Large members, and two Representatives for each local chapter. Officers and At-Large members are elected at the IORC annual meeting in the fall. Local chapter representatives are appointed by the local chapter members. The IORC Board is the governing body of IORC, deciding on the strategic direction of the organization, approving IORC’s annual budget, and oversees staff.
