X12 Board Elections Scheduled for December 2023 – Application Period Open

X12 Board elections are scheduled for December 2023. X12 members will elect two directors to serve on the X12 Board for the 2024-2026 term. One seat must be filled by a member representative of an X12 member and the other seat is unrestricted, meaning it does not have to be filled by an X12 member representative.

Applications are being accepted now through 11:59 pm ET on December 03, 2023. Individuals who meet the criteria listed below may register their interest in serving on the X12 Board by submitting this online application form.

An election committee will review the submitted applications and select the candidate slate for the ballot based on these criteria and requirements.

  1. Represent a member whose representatives are entitled to serve in elected positions or be a non-member with a vested interest in X12’s mission and activities.

  3. Be free of any professional, volunteer, or personal interest that conflicts with X12’s corporate interests

The Election Committee will determine the slate based on an applicant’s statements related to the following requirements:
