The Combustion Institute Board of Directors Nomination Committee is assembling a slate of 18 candidates for the 2018 Board of Directors election. Members who wish to vote in the election must ensure their account is active on the CI Account Management System (AMS) no later than 30 April 2018. New section members who did not vote in the 2016 election are encouraged to register for an account.

BOD candidate information will be announced in the beginning of May. Nine directors will be elected by the membership through the electronic election process first implemented in 2014. The election will use a modified STV process in 2018. The modification ensures at least two candidates from industry are elected, consistent with the BOD’s goal of maintaining its industrial representation.

Active members with a confirmed email address will receive an electronic ballot to participate in the election on 15 June. Voting members will have until 16 July to respond.

Results of the election will be publicly announced at the 37th International Symposium on Combustion in Dublin, Ireland that will convene from Sunday, 29 July through Friday, 3 August 2018. The elected directors will begin their term at the conclusion of the symposium. If you have not yet registered for the symposium, please do so before the early bird deadline of 23:59 PDST, 1 May 2018.

Election of directors is conducted biennially. Directors serve six-year terms. Refer to The Combustion Institute By-Laws for more information about the Board of Directors. Questions regarding the election may be directed to:
