Dear ICGI members:
Per ICGI bylaws, elections are held biennially for the Overall Co-Chair and all Workgroup Co-Chairs.
After serving two years, the Co-Chairs will assume the respective Chair positions. Note that both the Chairs and Co-Chairs serve on ICGI's Executive Steering Committee.
We request a few minutes of your time now, please, to consider candidates and place your votes for our new Officers. Thanks for your time and input.
The 2019 election for new officers is held from April 1-May 1.
NOTE: We are fortunate in having two or more candidates for every officer position. BEFORE or DURING VOTING, you can access each candidate's statement for your choice.
