Interest Group Leadership
Share |

Each interest group has five elected roles: Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Secretary, Student and Early Career (SEC) Representative and an International Liaison. The Vice-Chairperson automatically succeeds the Chairperson for a two-year term. The ICA Governance year begins and ends on the last day of our annual conference; terms are typically two years in length (though sometimes variations in term length occur). 

If you wish to contact interest group leadership, please use Member Search to find contact information. The member search resource is available to ICA members (you must be signed into your account to access the search results). 

If you have questions about ICA governance or a correction to this page, please contact Julie Arnold
