The Board of Directors is the governing body of the Association and represents the membership as a whole. With a strong focus on the future of and for institutional research, the Board gathers member input and ensures it is used in decision making. To enact those decisions, Board members develop and maintain a comprehensive set of policies that guide organizational actions. It is the Board’s responsibility to ensure that AIR achieves the purposes for which it exists while avoiding risk through a disciplined process of direction and a thorough system of monitoring performance against policy expectations.
The Nominations and Elections Committee (NEC) develops a slate of candidates consisting of at least two individuals for each open position (shown below). An election is held annually with the winning candidates taking office at the AIR Forum. The Vice President and Board Members-At-Large serve three-year terms while the Nominations and Elections Committee members serve two-year terms and three members are elected annually.
The Vice President serves as vice chairperson of the Board of Directors and represents the President when the latter is unable to perform their duties. The Vice President succeeds to the office of President at the termination of the one-year term as Vice President. The term of office is three years: one as Vice President, one as President, and the third as Immediate Past President/NEC Chair.
