TIA Calls for Candidates for Board of Directors

The Toy Industry Association, Inc. (TIA) invites all members to submit candidates for seats on the association’s board of directors. The board is responsible for the management and control of the activities, property, and affairs of TIA, including the strategic direction of the association, the annual budget, and the scope of responsibilities of the board and its committees.

The following criteria will be considered by the Nominating Committee for each nominee: commitment to attend regularly scheduled board meetings each year and, as appropriate, other relevant TIA-sponsored events; commitment to act in a neutral manner and represent the best interests of the industry rather than carrying forward individual or corporate agendas; professional skills that may be valuable to the board; holds a senior position within his/her company; experience in the toy industry; contributions to Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) and/or membership in the TIF Leaders Circle; and TIA committee participation.

Nominations are due by 5 p.m. ET on October 21. Nominations will be subsequently balloted for election by the TIA membership. Newly elected board members will begin a two-year term beginning at the TIA Annual Meeting at Toy Fair in February. Board members may be re-elected for two additional consecutive two-year terms.
