The Board of Directors of DIAC is made up of volunteer representatives from member companies. Board members serve terms of four years in duration and may stand for re-election at the end of their four year term. Board members are elected by the membership at the annual general meeting and usually sit on one or more committees of the Board. Board Committees include: Audit & Finance, Technorama & Conventions, Regulatory & Industry Affairs, Membership, Market Research & Data, and Executive & Governance.
DIAC’s by-laws and governance structure allow for members in good standing to nominate employees/owners of member companies to the Board of Directors and at the annual general meeting the membership votes for those nominated to sit on the Board for a term which can be 1-4 years dependent on the board vacancy.
The elected directors are responsible for electing the executive of the Association.
