HVI Board of Directors

One Member, One Vote

A vital component to any trade association is its Board of Directors. The HVI Board Members are the driving force behind HVI's success. Board Members are elected at the HVI Annual Meetings held in September. The Chairman, Vice Chairman, and Treasurer serve two-year terms. Once a Chairman has finished his/her term, he/she serves as the Immediate Past Chairman for two years. The Secretary, a position held by the HVI CEO, serves an indefinite term to coincide with the CEO's term of employment. There are up to five Members-at-large on the Board and each serves a one-year term.

Also critical to HVI's success is the active participation of its member companies. Each member company is entitled to a single vote on all issues brought before the various committees and the General Membership. The HVI Board of Directors is committed to transparent governance and strongly encourages each company to take advantage of its voting privileges. Each HVI member company, large and small, has the opportunity to shape the association as well as the residential mechanical ventilation industry. One member, one vote.
