Dear IDRS membership,
I am delighted to inform you that the full slate of the Members At-large has now been ratified by the membership. Thank you to all of those who participated in the ballot this past week. The following members will continue to serve as Directors on the IDRS Board of Directors until the end of 2026:
Members At-large (2024-2026)

Ravi Shankar Viana Domingues, At large – Associate Organizations
Monica Ellis, At large – Orchestra/Chamber (bassoon)

According to the Code of Regulations, at the end of 2024 I will be asking the membership to participate in self nominations for the Nominating Committee, followed by elections for the Officers of the Board whose terms are set to expire (Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer). It is expected the current Vice President will become President and the President will become Immediate Past President.
