ICA Election 2018 Results

Election 2018 Results

The International Communication Association annual election has closed. The scope of the election included both association-wide votes (on both officers and bylaws changes) as well as votes specific to any divisions or interest groups.  


CERTIFICATION OF RESULTS: ICA's election results were certified by the Tellers Committee comprised of the Executive Director, the President and the Nominating Committee Chair.  The committee reviewed both the list below, prepared by ICA’s Senior Manager of Governance, and checked it against the actual submission system’s tallies to ensure accuracy.

 

TERMS: Unless otherwise indicated, the officers elected in the Fall of 2018 serve a two-year term beginning Monday, 27 May 2019 (the last day of the 69th Annual Conference in Washington, DC USA) and ending with the conclusion of the 2021 conference in Denver, Colorado, USA.  Vice Chairs elected continue to serve two additional years as Chair (2021-2023).     

*ICA wide positions of Board Member at Large and Treasurer each serve a three year term.   

**A special note regarding the Secretary Election: ICA bylaws (Articles VI and VII, Section 3) mandate: "Each [Division/Interest Group] shall have a Chairperson, a Vice-Chairperson, a Secretary and a Student and Early Career Representative, who must be a student at the time he/she comes into office...The Vice-Chairperson and the Secretary shall be elected in alternate years, each for a term of two years." Some Division/Interest Groups had both positions slated for election in the same year. In effort to correct the election schedule, the secretary elected in the Fall of 2018 will serve a special three-year term, they are indicated with a double asterisks.
