Five directors leaving IASB Board

The IASB Board of Directors said goodbye to five of its members at the quarterly meeting held May 13 in Springfield.

Not running for re-election in April were: Roger Pfister (Shawnee), David Barton (Two Rivers), Dale Hansen (Three Rivers), Lisa Weitzel (Abe Lincoln), and June Maguire (Lake). They were all given plaques for their service to the IASB Board. Longest-serving among them were Pfister (21 years) and Barton (17 years). Hansen also served for several years as IASB Treasurer.

Directors who choose not to run or who are not re-elected to their local school boards are replaced according to the bylaw provisions adopted by each division. Vacancies that occur within the two-year director’s term are also filled according to bylaw provisions that may vary by division. The timing of the replacement process is also determined by the schedule of division meetings or governing board meetings for each division.

IASB will announce the names of new directors as they are chosen by their respective divisions.
