IPTAY Board of Directors Call For Nominations

IPTAY Board of Directors Call For Nominations

IPTAY is committed to the development of a large and diverse pool of candidates as District Directors to serve as at-large directors on the IPTAY Board of Directors and thereby represent a District of the IPTAY membership.   IPTAY is issuing this call for nominations and seeking potential candidates from the recommendations of the members of the Clemson University family at large.    In addition, IPTAY is concurrently seeking names from its members through written petition of the members of IPTAY grouped in their applicable District. 

To serve as a District Director, the IPTAY Board of Directors and IPTAY Nominating Committee has established general guidance to promote the nomination of qualified candidates, a full copy of which may be found at Committee guidelines may be found under the “Annual Fund” link and are listed under the “About” tab.

Candidates should demonstrate passion for Clemson University and its athletics programs, a high level of integrity, and a willingness to make the time commitments associated with the District Director position.    To ensure the continuing diversity of the IPTAY Board, IPTAY is seeking candidates, who are representative of minority groups and reflect the diverse population of Clemson University students and alumni.   IPTAY will also provide consideration to former student-athletes, who have been recipients of the IPTAY scholarship funds.    It is not an express requirement that a candidate be a graduate or a former student of Clemson University; however every proposed candidate must be a member of IPTAY in good standing, and may not be younger than twenty-one years of age upon the day of the election. 

In this nomination cycle, IPTAY has four board positions that will need to be filled from candidates who reside in the following geographic districts-

District 4 – South Carolina counties including: York, Lancaster, Chester, Chesterfield, Kershaw, Darlington, Fairfield, Lee & Marlboro.

District 7 – North Carolina
