Thirty-seven members cast votes last week for six candidates vying for two seats on the board.
Incumbent and INN co-founder Robert Rosenthal, executive director of the Center for Investigative Reporting, was not returned to the board, having received 14 votes.
“The board would like to thank Rosey for his immense contributions to the founding and nurturing of INN for the past five years,” said Brant Houston, board chair and also a co-founder of INN. “We deeply appreciate all his service and look forward to his continued involvement with INN.”
Under the bylaws, the board is composed of up to six public members, INN's CEO, and four executive directors elected from the member organizations, known as the membership council.
Being a board member requires one in-person meeting, several conference calls throughout the year, and some duties on committees or task forces. All board members are expected to coordinate with and assist management in fundraising and representing the interests of INN to the membership and interested outside parties.
