This is a time-intensive procedure that involves a great deal of thoughtful observation and identification of future leaders of the Institute.

Additional candidates can be added to the ballot by petition signed by 50 USITT members. For information on the process, e-mail Paul Brunner. Deadline for adding names to the ballot is Sept. 1.
