September 2017 Southeast Region Update

Hello, fellow Southeast Region Members!

We are looking forward to joining you soon at IECCon17, October 25-28, in Phoenix, AZ, celebrating the 60th anniversary of IEC! One of the essential functions of our federated form of association governance will be the assembly and voting on of our Regional Directors in the Southeast (SE) Region of IEC.

The second two-year term for Brian Haines (Mid-south IEC) expires at the end of 2018 while the first two-year term for Kristen Williams (IEC Atlanta) expires at the end of this year. Kristen has been nominated to serve an additional term as SE Regional Director, so our caucus will need to vote on extending her tenure on the board while at Convention this year. The Regional Caucus will take place on Saturday, October 28, 2:15 – 3:00 p.m. in Phoenix.

On a personal note, I can affirm the excellent job that Kristen has been doing representing our region and the concerns of the industry as a whole while serving with her on the Board of Directors of IEC National. It seems we always have some responsibility associated with IEC going on weekly that keeps us very busy in our respective roles, but Kristen has always handled these responsibilities in stride.

As always, candidate nominations can be made from the floor if their eligibility qualifications can be immediately confirmed and petitions are submitted with at least 10 signatures of contractor members in their region who are present at the caucus.

We look forward to seeing you there!

If you have any regional issues that you would like to discuss, please feel free to contact either Kristen or Brian with your concerns and we will endeavor to make your voice heard.
