Two candidates announced for 2023 ISDS Secretary

The 2023 ISDS Secretary position is a contested race this year.

Drs. Paul Palliser, McHenry County, and John Van Scoyoc, McLean County, have announced that they will run for the position. We encourage you to invite them to present at your local meetings so that each of you can get to know them better. According to campaign guidelines, to be fair, you must invite both candidates. Please see the guidelines below that were agreed to by each candidate in order to run:

Each candidate for a particular office will be invited to a specific district, component, or branch meeting to ensure an equal opportunity to meet with ISDS members. To be fair to each candidate, the district, component, or branch must give each candidate the courtesy of a 30-day written notice that it would like the candidates to attend their meeting for the purpose of a campaign presentation. If a candidate cannot attend that meeting, they must be given another opportunity to present. 

Please reach out to each of them using the contact info below:

Paul Palliser

John Van Scoyoc
