Dear ICGI Members:
This is another reminder of ongoing 2019 ICGI election for new officers. I
would like to thank those ICGI members who have cast their ballots. You
have exercised your right so you cannot revote!
For other ICGI members who have not voted yet, please follow my original
information on how to access the election page, read each candidate's
statement, and cast your vote as soon as possible but no later than *May 1,
A few of you might have encountered some difficulty with a message of "*You
don't have permission to view the election page.*" Please review your
membership status to see if you forgot to check your "voting member" box.
Every voting member should be able to access the election page and to cast
a vote if his/her membership was renewed by April 1, 2019.
Thanks again for your participation,

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.
 Go to and read the Election Home Page:
