Elected board members will be announced immediately after the election and seated on January 1, 2020.

There are three (3) appointed positions open for the 2020-2021 term;  one (1) to be filled from the EMEA region, and two (2) from the rest of the global membership. The CEDIA Governance Committee reviews candidates based on the skills needed and makes a recommendation to the Board, who vote to approve the appointment. This process runs in parallel with the election, with the appointments occurring at the January 2020 board meeting.
