ICA Senior Manager of
Member Services
and Governance

Our goal is to make this association your most valuable professional asset.
I welcome your feedback and encourage you to contact me directly should there be anything I can do to enhance your membership experience. I would be delighted to hear from you!


Divisions and Interest Groups are a nice way to customize your membership experience based on your personal topic area(s) of interest. Joining a Division or Interest Group affords you increased potential to network with colleagues of similar interest. You will receive field-specific calls for papers, newsletters or special announcements disseminated by section leaders. Each function autonomously and conduct business meetings in conjunction with our annual conference. Most offer awards for various scholastic achievements such as best paper, or best research by a young scholar. We recommend joining at least one section to augment your ICA membership.
