The ICA Board has two Committees

The ICA Board Committees support focused activities relating to the aims of ICA which are to enhance our members’ success in the international market place, in Europe and globally, by providing a supportive environment to share experience, to cooperate in new ventures, and to benefit from the resulting synergy..

The Chair of each Board Committee is ex-officio a member of the ICA Board.  The ICA Members are invited to nominate a person to represent them on both Committees.  These representatives are invited to encourage staff in their institution to participate in the activities of the Board Committees. The Executive Committee of each Board Committee is elected by its members.
