The International MPS Network (IMPSN) Board of Directors elections are held every two years at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). The IMPSN Board of Directors consist of seven Directors who are elected by an expanding global MPS Society membership. The Board of Directors consists of the following executive board positions:

•Chair/Co Chair
•Vice Chair

Four additional Board Members

Elected Directors serve a term of two years. Directors can serve a maximum of three consecutive terms. After a two-year recess, a previous IMPSN Director Emeritus, can run for the Board of Directors again. Chair and Vice Chair roles, are decided by the elected Board of Directors, and by simple majority.
Election Time Schedule:


Chair(s) of IMPSN will meet with current Directors, whose terms are expiring, to determine their interest in continued participation, whether they are interested in re-election to the Board and to assess the skills needed by directors for the IMPSN’s continued success.
