Apply for the 2021 ICAS President, Deputy President and Vice President roles
At the Special General Meeting on 30 November 2020, ICAS Members voted overwhelmingly in favour of proposals to change the way in which Office Bearers are appointed.
The changes to the General Regulations are now in force and, as a result, the 2021 Office Bearers will be appointed by Council under the new process.
Members may now nominate themselves for any of the three Office Bearer positions – President, Deputy President and Vice President – and their application will be considered by the Presidential Nominations Committee (PNC) alongside the candidates that it has identified as being potential Office Bearers, who will then make a recommendation for each position to Council.
The roles of President, Deputy President and Vice President
The Office Bearers have responsibility for the outward projection of ICAS' policy and values at formal and informal events, and for forging working relationships at home and abroad.
They act as principal spokespeople for ICAS, liaising with government, public authorities and the press.
A key aspect of the roles is maintaining communication and engagement with ICAS Members to ensure that their views and values are promoted.
How to submit your application
If you wish to be considered for an Office Bearer position, please complete and submit the application form by close of business on Friday 19 February 2021.
Please ensure that your application is supported by 25 ICAS Members and that their details are included on the form.
The PNC will review all applications and shortlist those it wishes to invite to interview. Interviews will be held remotely by MS Teams and will follow exactly the same format for both self-nominated and PNC candidates.
The PNC will then recommend a candidate for each Office Bearer position to Council, and Council will vote on each.
The appointments will be announced at the 2021 Annual General Meeting on Friday 30 April.
