2022 ICON•S Council Elections – Call for Nominations !

We are pleased to announce plans to continue renewing the Society’s Council with an infusion of new members directly elected by our membership.
We will invite the membership to elect six (6) new Council members, each to serve a three-year non-renewable term.
The 2022 ICON-S Council elections will proceed in two phases: first, nomination; and second, election.
You are now called to nominate suitable candidates for Council membership. Membership on the Council is a position of high distinction, entailing responsibility for the intellectual guidance of the Society, advising the Executive Committee, and representing the interests of the membership.
Nominations should be submitted via email to ICON•S at the following email address no later than Monday, August 8, 2022, 5pm GMT: icons@icon-society.org.

 

–> Nominations should include:

  • the nominee’s name,
  • academic title,
  • institutional affiliation,
  • history of participation in and involvement with ICON-S,
  • a weblink to a CV or profile.
Self-nominations are welcome!
Nominations will be reviewed by the Executive Committee by the end of August, and the names approved will then be submitted to the entire membership of the Society for electronic voting.

Elections will be held online in late September 2022  (the exact election dates will be communicated in due course)

Please bear in mind that only active members of the Society can submit nominations, run for elections, and be elected as members of the  ICON•S Council. You can activate your membership by logging in directly from your ICON•S account. To see the different types of memberships available, click here.
