Matthew Haynes 0 458 Article rating: No rating

In balloting that ended July 19, SIOP voters approved an amendment creating a new Diversity and Inclusion Portfolio Officer on the Executive Board.

They also ratified a provision limiting the eligibility of current officers to run for future seats on the board, a measure intended to assure that officers serve the entire term for any elected position.

SIOP President Eden King introduced the amendment creating the Diversity and Inclusion Officer as part of her closing plenary presentation at the 2019 SIOP Annual Conference.  

The amendment was first proposed by several committee representatives, including Ismael Diaz, Mindy Bergman, and Enrica Ruggs, and Membership Portfolio Chair Allan Church at the end of the 2018 Conference. The Amendment was unanimously approved by the Executive Board in January 2019 for presenting to the membership for a vote.
