IIC holds an Annual General Meeting every year which every IIC Fellow, Honorary Fellow, Individual member and student member is invited to attend. The Annual General Meeting is to allow Council (IIC’s charity trustees) to explain their management of the Institute to the members and it also provides members with an opportunity to ask questions before voting on the business items on the agenda, and to elect, or re-elect, members of Council to run the Institute for the next twelve months.
At the next AGM, to be held in London on Monday 27th January 2020, six positions as ordinary Members of Council and one as Director of Communications will be open to election and Council are seeking candidates to come forward, for election by the membership.
All IIC Council positions are for an initial term of three years’ duration and when elected each individual will be a trustee of a charity, and a director of a Company limited by guarantee, registered in England & Wales.
IIC is an international body and continually seeks to represent an international variety of cultures and disciplines on Council. The current Council has members from Australia, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Sweden, the UK and the USA.
Why stand for election to Council?
As a member of IIC’s Council you will take an active role in shaping and promoting the aims and activities of IIC at a time of important changes and help IIC to serve better the international heritage community. Council discussions and projects use e-mail as the principal means for communication, in addition to three meetings a year, two of them in London. Internet conferencing is used to reduce the need for travel and encourage participation.
How to nominate a candidate for election
Candidates need to be nominated by an IIC Fellow, but do not necessarily need to be an IIC Fellow to be on IIC’s Council: under IIC’s governing rules up to one-third of Council’s members are not required to be IIC Fellows. You can search for and contact current IIC Fellows and Honorary Fellows by logging in to the IIC web-site and using the member search facility. If you are an IIC Fellow, you may put your own name forward or you can ask another Fellow to nominate you.
There is no formal nomination form: nominations should be sent by letter or email to the IIC office, including a statement of support by at least one IIC Fellow, to arrive at the IIC office by no later than 27th November 2019.
The contact details for the IIC Office can be found at the foot of this web page and of every page on the IIC web-site
