Board of Directors

IA’s Board of Directors is comprised of accomplished leaders from both brand-side insights departments and market research and analytics agencies. The Board is charged with fairly representing the interests of the membership, encouraging participation in programs, setting strategic plans for the Association, and serving as liaisons with members. The Board seating process includes nominations by our Nominating Committee, who identify candidates based on their qualifications, alignment with strategic goals, and demonstration of commitment to IA. The slate of candidates is then presented to the membership for a majority vote of approval.
