Certification Board seeks agriculture & landscape irrigation experts

The Irrigation Association Certification Board is soliciting volunteers to fill up to four board openings for agriculture and landscape irrigation experts. The 13-member board establishes policies and processes for IA’s Select Certified program, develops new certifications, updates exams, monitors grading procedures and maintains standards for the certification process.

Board members participate in conference calls, committee work and two two-day meetings: one at the Irrigation Show and Education Conference and one during the summer. Newly selected members will serve a three-year term beginning immediately after the 2019 Irrigation Show, Dec. 2-6, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Applicants must be IA members and certified irrigation designers in good standing with one or more specialties. All members of the Certification Board must sign a confidentiality statement and must not be involved in developing or teaching classes that prepare candidates for IA certification exams.

For more information on the Certification Board, visit the IA website. To apply, submit a completed nomination packet by July 1 to the IA certification department (703.536.7080).
