The ISPE International Board of Directors 2019 Elections were opened on Tuesday, 18 June 2019 and closed on 7 August 2019. Ballots were emailed to all ISPE Members eligible to vote. Members with no email on file or whose email generated an error will receive a postcard with ballot instructions.
The email contains a personal URL to access the ballot, review the nomination materials, and to cast your vote online. The personal URL can be used only once, and it can be used only by the Member to whom it was assigned.
Postcards are being mailed to ISPE Members eligible to vote who did not have a valid email address listed in the ISPE Member database. Postcards are also being mailed to those Members for whom the email address on file generated an error. Your postcard contains information on how to access the secure election site.
Your ballot instructions will indicate that you can vote for one person for each Officer position and five people for the Director positions. This could be either votes for candidates listed, write in votes for any other ISPE Member, or a combination.
Directors are elected to a two-year term and can serve up to two terms consecutively. The officer positions on the ballot are Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary. The current Chair automatically becomes Past Chair in the next year and the President serves as a non-voting ex-officio member. Terms for officers are one year and the Secretary is the first officer position in the typical officer succession. Each candidate for secretary is typically making a five-year commitment to serve in the roles of Secretary through Past Chair.
Candidates have been selected by the Nominating Committee and then approved by the Board of Directors as required in ISPE’s bylaws. The current Board of Directors and the 2019 Nominating Committee identified several skillsets and characteristics that are necessary in order to execute the upcoming refreshed Strategic Plan. Some of those identified skillsets include regulatory/compliance experience, ISPE knowledge, chapter/affiliate leadership, demonstrated strategic-focus, and global pharmaceutical manufacturing experience. The ballot reflects these necessary skills but please keep these factors in mind while voting.

In 2016, ISPE Governance Documents were updated to give the Board the authority to appoint one Director position to the Board during the established election cycle. The objective is to ensure ISPE has the appropriate diversity within the Board to execute business strategies as defined in our ISPE Strategic Plan. It is not the Board’s expectation that every election cycle will require an appointed position and no appointed Director was chosen this year.
The following individuals have been elected to a two-year term and will be continuing their term in 2019-2020.
The following individuals will complete their Board service and will officially end their term at the 2019 ISPE Annual Meeting & Expo. ISPE thanks these individuals for their dedication and commitment to the organization.
