International Announcement
2020 IWIRC Board of Directors

IWIRC is changing its Board terms to start on January 1st of each calendar year, rather than at the Fall Conference in conjunction with NCBJ. To that end, the due date for Board nominations has been moved to September 16, 2019. IWIRC will accept nominations for the following positions:

  • Vice Finance Director on the Executive Committee (previous or current Board service required);

  • Management Committee Directors and Vice Directors; and 

  • Six At-Large Directors.

A full list of Board positions is available here.


Current Management Committee Directors and Vice Directors who would like to continue their position need to indicate their willingness to be considered for another one-year term.


Management Committee Directors and Vice Directors serve a one-year term. The six elected At-Large Directors will serve a two-year term (January 2020 - December 2022). All candidates must be members of IWIRC and be willing to undertake projects to further the mission and goals of IWIRC. If elected, all Board members are required to participate in regular telephonic meetings and to attend the three annual in-person meetings of the IWIRC Board (IWIRC Fall Conference, IWIRC Spring Meeting, IWIRC Leadership Summit).


If you would like to nominate someone (self-nominations are encouraged!), please send the name, contact information and a brief statement in support of the candidate (400 words max) to Shari Bedker, Administrative Director, at by September 16, 2019.


Nominations must include the following:

  • Name, professional affiliation, address, phone number and e-mail address of nominee;

  • The Board position being sought; and

  • A statement in support of the nominee (for example, how long the nominee has been a member of IWIRC, the nominee's contributions to a Network and/or at the international level, and the specific skills the nominee will bring to the Board). Please do NOT submit a nominee's professional CV.  

At-Large Director nomination statements will be included on the ballot to enable IWIRC members to assess the candidate's qualifications. (Statements may be edited for length if necessary.)


** A nomination that does not meet the above requirements WILL NOT be considered.**

After the nomination deadline, the Nominating Committee will circulate a slate of the Executive Board and Management Committee and a ballot with all At-Large Director candidates to IWIRC Members. Voting on the slate and for the six At-Large Director positions will begin on November 1st and run for approximately 2 weeks.

This is a great opportunity to contribute to IWIRC at an advanced level and be part of a global team of dynamic women insolvency professionals. Please nominate a candidate today!

Member Testimonials

"IWIRC is a great organization for getting connected. Not only is the group fun and professional with its members easy to get to know, the IWIRC conferences prior to the large events (ABI and NCBJ) make those conferences much more manageable as one already sees several friendly faces."
