Change to the bylaws concerning Committee Chair nominations
Please note the Board of Trustees agreed in Montreal to amend the bylaws concerning the Chair positions - these changes come into effect for all 2016 Committee Chair applications. In order to apply for a Committee Chair position you will need to be an existing or recent (within the past 5 years) committee member. Should no committee member (existing or recent) be willing to stand for the position then the ICS office will call for applications from the membership. All Chair nominations will go to membership vote (this remains unchanged in the bylaws.)
Please note that all elected positions (Trustee) require nominations from ICS members. So if you are interested in applying for an elected position then you will need to be nominated and seconded by a current ICS member. These nominations should be emailed to Nickie@ics.org

ICS policy on campaigning
Campaigning for ICS elected positions is not permitted by applicants or members. Any campaigning, be it positive or negative, will result in the disqualification of the candidate. The Board of Trustees’ judgement will be final in determining whether a candidate has engaged in positive or negative campaigning. Negative campaigning is not permitted by any candidate or ICS member and will be considered a violation of the ICS Code of Conduct. This policy is in effect at all times and for any position.
During the voting period candidates’ application forms will be circulated by the ICS office for all members to view. In addition, the ICS office will periodically contact all ICS members to encourage voting and provide direct links to the voting section of the ICS website.
