Sangha members can provide nominations for open board positions by submitting an online nomination form found below.

Sangha nominations for board positions will be open until midnight of the day that is one week prior to voting. This is necessary in order to contact all nominees for approval of their nomination. A select board member of TCIA will be responsible for reaching out to nominees to determine acceptance of their nomination.

Nominations cannot be made anonymously as you must be identified as a member of the Sangha. Self nominations will be accepted. Sangha members can email nomination forms to the TCIA email (tcia@artibet.com).

Only active TCIA board members are able to vote for new or incumbent members. Sangha members will be given an opportunity to have their voice heard during the meeting before the voting occurs. If Sangha members would prefer to share their opinions in a written format, they can send written information when they submit their nomination form(s). They can indicate on the nomination form a preference for their written opinion to be shared by a selected board member of TCIA. If the Sangha member would prefer their voice to remain anonymous during the public opinion session, they can indicate this on the nomination form or they can email the TCIA email (tcia@artibet.com) at least two days prior to the voting meeting. Early submission is preferred.
