The state of the Society is strong and getting stronger, and a major reason why is our active and engaged membership.
One of ICON•S’s most important governing bodies is the Council. The Council is composed of a combination of founding members and elected representatives. Once every three years, the members of the Society nominate candidates for the Council and vote in the Council elections. The electoral process is designed by rules attempting at balancing different criteria to reflect the membership’s diversity and the goals of the Society. Gender balance and geographical diversity are observed in the electoral processes.
We are pleased to continue renewing the Society’s Council with an infusion of new members directly elected by our membership.
This year we invite you to elect six (6) new Council members, each to serve a three-year non-renewable term.
Membership on the Council is a position of high distinction, entailing the responsibility to provide intellectual guidance for the Society, to advise the Executive Committee, and to represent the interests of the ICON•S members.
The elections will run from February 23 to April 1, 2023.
• To promote regional diversity consistent with the Society’s mission to be open to all, two (2) seats will be reserved for persons from Africa, two (2) for persons from Asia, and two (2) for persons from Latin America.
• To promote balanced gender composition consistent with the Society’s recognition of the importance of diversity, at least one elected Council member from each of Africa, Asia, and Latin America must self-identify as female.
