The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification(IICRC) announced it has opened nominations for the 2014 IICRC Board of Directors. Candidates should have knowledge and experience working in the floor covering, textile, upholstery, inspection and restoration industries. In addition to being able to dedicate time to IICRC-related activities, nominees should be active in and knowledgeable about the IICRC. Submissions are due to the IICRC Headquarters no later than July 19, 2013.

“It’s an exciting time to be involved with the IICRC,” said Rodney Paulson, Chairman of the IICRC Vetting Committee. “We are always looking for new ideas to help advance the Institute, so we welcome all nominations and hope this call for nominations attracts a skilled and enthusiastic set of qualified candidates.”

Once nominations are received, the IICRC Vetting Committee will thoroughly review each candidate and his/her qualifications. While all nominations will be reviewed and responded to, not all nominees will be deemed qualified or recommended by the Committee for election. Those deemed unqualified will be given notice of the decision and provided with an opportunity for response.

All nominees who meet the requisite requirements shall be eligible to receive votes, although the Vetting Committee will provide shareholders with recommendations. Any candidate contacted by the committee should be prepared to accept the nomination.
