Elections to be held for
Iowa/USA Wrestling Board of Directors Positions
Elections will be held in August for nine Board positions on the Iowa/USA Wrestling Board of Directors. These positions will be voted upon by the Board of Directors and club directors in the July/August 2018 meeting. A four-year commitment is required as the terms for these positions begin at the conclusion of the Board meeting and proceed for four years, through the 2022 Board of Directors meeting. Board members are responsible for helping set policies and direction for Iowa/USA Wrestling. The Board meets twice per year, usually in May and August. In addition, Board members may be asked to serve on Iowa/USA Wrestling standing or ad hoc committees from time to time.
Any member with a current USA Wrestling membership as of June 1, 2018, is eligible to serve on the Board. Any current member may also nominate another USA Wrestling member for these positions. Prospective candidates may nominate themselves or be nominated by someone else. A nomination form is printed on this page. Candidates will be contacted by the State Chairman or Treasurer/Membership board member to determine if they wish to serve (if nominated by someone else) or to confirm receipt of the nomination if they nominate themselves.

1. Completely fill out the nomination form below. You must have a current 2018 USA Wrestling membership as of June 1, 2018 and must provide your membership number in the space provided.
2. Send the nomination form (and any material reinforcing your candidate's qualifications) to the address below for receipt no later than Monday, July 2, 2018.
