ISS Names Board of Directors
Change in Organization’s Bylaws Specify Revised Board Tenure and Structure.
The ISS (International Superyacht Society) announces its 2012-2015 Board of Directors and Past Presidents Council. ISS elections are held annually by peer selection. During 2011, ISS membership ratified changes to the Association’s Bylaws which now state that a total of 24 elected Board members will serve three-year terms.
During the 2012, 2013 and 2014 election cycles, the ISS Board will be in transition. For the current year and based on a democratic voting system, ISS members have awarded eight Board positions for three years and four Board positions for one-year terms with the opportunity to re-run for the 2013-2016 term. With the 2014 election, the fully constituted Board will be in place, satisfying the revised parameters outlined in the Society’s Bylaws.
Representing global interests, both the ISS Executive Committee and Board of Directors are well represented. Of the Executive Committee, three members are based full-time in Europe, two full-time in the U.S. and one with homes and business interests in both regions. Of the Board, eight are based in Europe, 14 in the United States and one in Australia. The ISS Executive Committee was elected by the Board of Directors during its Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show Board Meeting.
