The IxDA Board of Directors is pleased to put out this open call for Chair of the Interaction|14 conference, to be held in Europe in February of 2014.  Applications of interest are due by 30 April, 2012, 11:59 PM EST.  We will confirm the successful person by 22 May, 2012.

Nominate yourself or someone else:  http://bit.ly/A7SbE1 

We are excited to open up this role as another way the community can be involved in shaping the Interaction conference and in IxDA leadership.  Historically at least one Chair for each Interaction conference has been a sitting director on the IxDA Board of Directors.  While this has afforded us great ease in filling the role with trusted colleagues and leaders, it is time to allow others the opportunity to take on this leadership position.

You will be required to name a Co-Chair to work with you. We leave this choice to you as you must have flexibility to find the right partner on this challenging project.

Interaction|14 will be held in Europe in 2014. We will be putting out an open call for location nominations within Europe in March 2012.  The Chair will be selected prior to the location evaluation, allowing all interested locations to know who is leading the way.  The Chair, along with a small review team, will submit the recommended location, along with a second back-up location, to the Board of Directors for confirmation in August 2012.

As a part of your (and your Co-Chair's) role, IxDA will fly and accomodate your stay at Interaction|13 in Toronto in February 2013, where you will be launching the location for Interaction|14.

Are you interested? Or is there someone you'd like to suggest we contact? Let us know:  http://bit.ly/A7SbE1 

Process of application

1.  Review the outline of Chair responsibilities:  http://bit.ly/hE5ubs

2.  Provide your contact information and a brief response about your vision and interest (or nominate someone you feel would be a strong candidate and we'll reach out to them). http://bit.ly/A7SbE1 

3.  We will send you the conference principles for review, outlining things such as important dates, location requirements, suggested committee structures and planning requirements. 

4.  We will request further information and conversations from you as necessary to understand your position.

5.  We will let you know by 22 May, 2012 who has been selected as Chair.
