SVIA Board of Directors Nominations

Nominations needed before September 20, 2017

September 6-20, 2017
The SVIA Board of Directors has five seats that will be open for election at the end of this year. The seats are for four service firm members and one plan sponsor. As the voting member for your company, you have the opportunity to nominate individuals as candidates to run for election to the board. Your nomination would be appreciated by September 20th.
Current Board & Membership - A list of current board members is provided to help you think about your nominations along with a list of current voting members. These can be found under the Current Board of Directors tab at the left of your screen.

Current Voting Members - A list of SVIA's current voting members can be found on the left of your screen under Voting Members/Companies.
Retiring Member - A plan sponsor seat will be open as Joe Fazzino from United Technologies Corporation is retiring.

Ex-Officio Members - Two board members have completed two terms of service and thus are required to leave the board. Susan Graef, The Vanguard Group, and Brett Gorman, PIMCO, have both been appointed as ex-officios to serve as non-voting members for up to 3 years. These two service firm seats are now vacant and open for election. 

Eligible for Second Term - Two members of the board are eligible to run for a second term if nominated. Robert Madore, T. Rowe Price Associates, a service firm member, will be finishing his first term and is eligible to run for a second term. LeAnn Bickel, Invesco Advisors, also a service firm member, is also eligible to run for another term.

Please join me in thanking and recognizing Joe Fazzino, Brett Gorman, and Sue Graef for their service on SVIA's Board of Directors and encouraging Bob Madore and LeAnn Bickel who are running for another term on the board of directors.
