Participation and voting rights 

Those eligible to vote at the Annual General Meeting are members of the executive board, chapter delegates, region delegates, and member-at-large delegates, with each holding one vote.

Voting on all matters, including amendment of bylaws and the election of executive board directors or officers, will be executed by an online vote calculated by the Credentials Committee.


At the Annual General Meeting, a quorum consists of a majority of the total professional membership of IABC as represented by region, chapter and member-at-large delegates and by those holding proxies for absent delegates. To ensure quorum is achieved, IABC encourages all chapters to participate in voting for the AGM.


Shall those eligible to vote choose not to participate in the Annual General Meeting personally, they may assign their vote by written proxy to another member of the same organizational unit, to the appropriate region delegate, or to any executive board member. All voting will take place electronically in advance of the AGM.
