AIC District Directors to be Selected at Upcoming Spring District Workshops

Posted By Justin Ruen, Thursday, April 4, 2019

District Directors representing regions of the state on the AIC Board of Directors will be selected at the upcoming AIC Spring District Workshops in late April.   You can register for the Spring District Workshops via the AIC website.

Training topics that will be covered at the Spring District Workshops include a review of the 2019 legislative session, the municipal budgeting process, and planning and zoning. 

The Spring District Workshops will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the following locations:

Monday, April 22: District 5—Idaho Central Credit Union, 4400 Central Way, Chubbuck

Tuesday, April 23: District 6—Shilo Inn Convention Center, 780 Lindsay Blvd., Idaho Falls

Wednesday, April 24: District 4—Best Western Burley Inn, 800 North Overland Ave., Burley

Thursday, April 25: District 3—Nampa Civic Center, 311 3rd St. S., Nampa

Monday, April 29: District 2—Best Western Plus University Inn, 1516 Pullman Rd., Moscow

Tuesday, April 30: District 1—Best Western Plus Coeur d’Alene Inn, 506 W. Appleway Ave., Coeur d’Alene

The District Caucuses for selecting the District Directors will be held at 12:45 p.m. during the lunch break.

At the request of the elected officials in District 3A, their caucus will be held in May at a time that will be more convenient.

In 2016, the AIC Bylaws were amended to provide that nomination and election of AIC Board District Directors take place at the Spring District Workshops.  The primary reason for the Bylaw change was to allow more AIC member cities to participate in the nomination and election of AIC Board District Directors.

The AIC Board includes two elected officials from each district, with District Directors serving alternating two-year terms.  Normally, one District Director is elected each year, unless the other District Director position is vacant, in which case board members to fill both positions would be selected at the caucus.  The District Director whose term is not expiring serves as the Presiding District Director at the caucus.  In the event that both director positions are vacant, then an Acting Presider is selected to fill that role.

The process of selecting District Directors begins with the Presiding District Director calling for nominations.  People not present, but eligible, may be nominated.  Self-nominations are also allowed.  After nominations have been made, each nominee may choose to say a few words.

Voting may be either by voice vote or written ballots.  Each elected official present at the caucus is allowed one vote.  For example, if the mayor and four councilmembers from one city are present, they each may cast one vote for a total of five votes from that city.  Only elected officials are allowed to vote.  The candidate receiving the most votes is elected.  If there is a tie, the Presiding District Director shall break the tie.
