A Message About the New Website

Posted By John Paul Gutierrez, Monday, January 9, 2017
Updated: Monday, January 9, 2017

If you have navigated to you’ll see a brand-new look for our site! Over the holidays, ICA staff diligently worked to migrate member data and content over to a new vendor. With the new look comes some new features and new ways to access information. Here’s a rundown and some things to look out for.

My Profile

Once logged into the site (at the top or bottom of the homepage) you can manage your profile in the My Profile and Manage Profile sections (essentially replacing taking over for what was called My ICA). Here you’ll be able to edit your bio, see what Divisions you belong to, select what kind of correspondence you wish to receive, and choose set what information you wish to set as private or active in the member directory.

If you are not an active member you will not be able to access all information until you renew. If you believe your membership is active and it does not reflect that when logging in, contact

Division and Interest Group Pages

You’ll find that the section pages have changed significantly. Once on a group page that can be navigated from the homepage dropdown Groups>Divisions or Groups>Interest Groups, you’ll see the navigation is not across the top like the old site. You’ll have to select the green + sign for Directory and Features. This will show you all the pages and features that each respective section contains.



The journals page remains the same. However, we are still in the process of connecting our data for access to the journals.We ask for your patience as each publisher updates our script for access.

Paper Management System

The All Academic site is closed until 17 January when paper acceptance notifications have gone out. If you are not an administrator on the account, you will not be able to log in now.


Once the site is open, you will see that things are a bit different. On the old site the link would automatically log you in to All Academic; the API no longer allows for this feature. Clicking on the Paper Management System link will get you to ICA’s All Academic site, where you then will have to log in again using your ICA credentials to enter the site. If you have forgotten your password, click Sign In>Forgot your password? on the ICA site. Updating your password on our site will update it on All Academic as well.


Please be sure that you are using the smaller log-in field on the right-hand side of the screen, not the larger "Guest Log-In" field on the left.

Once the site reopens on 17 January, it should not matter if you are a member or a paper submitter to log into the ICA All Academic site. If you do have credential problems, contact

Registering for the Annual Conference

We will have a new store for conference registration going live on 17 January. This store is different from our old site and has some extra steps that might seem cumbersome at first. There is a three-step selection process for registration. You will:

  1. Select your tier
  2. Enter in your contact information (this will automatically populate over from your data if you are already a member). It must match the tier you selected.
  3. Select the events you wish to attend from a list that includes Main Conference Registration, Special Events and Excursions, and Pre/Postconferences.

As always, we are here to help you in any way we can to make this transition easier. There are some bumps we will encounter as we find data flaws or broken links, but please bear with us as we work to streamline the site.

Kind regards,

John Paul Gutierrez

Associate Executive Director
