Elections 2020

Elections for two Vice President Positions

We as a global organization that needs to continue to function and become even more high impact in these challenging times decided to go ahead with the announced elections.

This year IODA will be holding elections for two vice presidential positions:

The elected term of Mohanakrishnan Raman from India and Claudia Raffo from Chile has reached its end. We thank both of them for their support and service for IODA. 

The purpose of these two positions is to create and execute strategy, with the support of volunteers focusing on strengthening IODA as an organization, energizing community engagement, and building relationships and collaboration with other organizations and institutions in service of IODA’s purpose of co-creating the global OD community.

Both positions have a three year term of office starting after the results have been announced. The installation of the position will be celebrated during the next annual IODA conference.
