The ICA president makes a 5 1/2-year commitment to the Executive Committee (six months as president-elect select; one year as president-elect and 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 both the General Secretary of the Board of Directors and as the chair of the Regional Conferences Committee.
