The three seats up for election in 2022 are  seat for a CDGP,  seat for a CSHM, and  seat for At-Large, which can come from a CHMM, CDGP, CHMP, CSHM, or CSMP The Board of Directors recently updated the IHMM Constitution and Bylaws to all allow for an election of at least one Certificant on the Board representing each significant Certification. Additional Board members from any Certification can be elected to an “At Large” position. Since the merger with ISHM, a number of CSHM’s or CSMP’s have come forward to be in the election. A number of CHMM’s remain on the Board and the total number of members of the BoD has been downsized to make the Board more manageable.
