ICA Online Elections Began 1 September

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, September 8, 2020

On 1 September, International Communication Association members began voting for association-wide and division/interest group officers. Like previous years, the vote takes place using an online-only ballot. Polls will remain open until 12:00 Noon ICA Office Time (EDT) on 15 October. 


Candidate statements for the ICA Presidential position are included in this newsletter; all other (association wide and division/interest group) candidate statements are included within the online ballots in the ICA election system. 


To access the ballot from the ICA website, members will need their ICA username and password. Members, please make sure that ICA has your correct email address so that the association can send you an announcement of the election and a link to the ballots. The ICA website allows you to personally verify, correct, and/or update the information.


To vote in the election, click here. If you have any questions about the elections, please contact Julie Arnold, Senior Manager of Governance.


ICA wide positions are Board level roles, representing the top level of our leadership. ICA wishes to thank the Nominating Committee for their diligent efforts to put forth a fantastic, experienced, and qualified slate.  

Congratulations and best of luck to each of the 2020 ICA-wide candidates:



PRESIDENT

The member selected as president makes a 5 1/2-year commitment to the Executive Committee (six months as president elect select; one year as President-Elect/Conference Program Chair; one year as ICA President; three years as Past President). The final year on the Executive Committee, the Past President serves as General Secretary and chair of the Regional Conferences Committee. The President-Elect-Select selected in the 2020 election will begin service on the Executive Committee immediately upon announcement of the results.

TREASURER

The ICA Treasurer works closely with the Executive Director to oversee the budget, investments, endowments, reserves, and cash flow of the association. The Treasurer participates in a quarterly call to review investments, will attend monthly Executive Committee calls, and is a voting member of the Executive Committee for three years, preceded by an initial “Treasurer Elect” year in which the role is non-voting and observational. The Treasurer reviews monthly bank statements and approves the fiscal year budget as prepared by the Executive Director. As ICA’s accounts, investments, and financial procedures are conducted according to GAAP in the United States, the Treasurer should have a strong understanding of US tax rules and best practices. The ideal Treasurer will have past experience controlling a large budget and have had significant fiscal responsibility in university settings, federal granting agencies, large private foundations, private sector firms, or on large funded research grants and contracts, etc. Because of the complexity of this role, the slate is narrowed to one candidate, to be ratified in the election. The Treasurer selected in the 2020 election will begin service at the end of the 2021 Annual ICA Conference in Denver.

BOARD MEMBER-AT-LARGE

Board Members-at-Large serve one three-year term; there are three BMAL at any given time. The purpose of Member-at-Large positions is to grow the Board of Directors representation from underrepresented regions. The BMAL selected in the 2020 election will begin service at the end of the 2021 Annual ICA Conference in Denver.
