Reminder Officer/Director nominations sought for 2023

Hello, IAC members, it is time to nominate our 2023 slate of officers and directors. Nominating petitions are due by April 14. Voting will be done electronically on the IAC website, beginning June 28, voting ends on July 25. New officers and directors will be installed at the close of the IAC Annual Membership Meeting at AirVenture in Oshkosh on July 28, 2023.

Positions to be filled are Vice President, Treasurer, and Class II directors (term expiring July 2023). Directors are elected "at large", not by region, and are then assigned a region after they're elected. If you wish to see which directors' positions are up for election or re-election, take a look at and navigate to About / Leadership / Yellow Pages. 

Prospective Board Members should review the Bylaws of the International Aerobatic Club, Inc. and Policy and Procedure section 218

Very briefly, a candidate for office must submit a nominating petition signed by 10 current IAC members in good standing, a photograph, and a resume / bio. For more detailed information details are listed below. All signatures must be on a petition form, and multiple petition forms are accepted. So, if you choose to run for office, you can fill out a blank petition form, e-mail it to another IAC member and have them sign it, scan, and e-mail, fax, or snail mail to me. Call before faxing to (509) 747-5478, this will ensure that the machine is set up to receive.

Feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have. I prefer to have IAC related e-mail sent to me at dougsowder [at]
