Call for ILTS Council Nominations

As ILTS continues to evolve and grow, the Council requires high caliber members whose backgrounds, skills and experience match the ILTS mission and its current and future needs.

One Council seat is now available to serve a four-year term that will begin at the conclusion of the 2020 Annual Congress.

We will be accepting nominations from November 1 to December 1, 2019
