IMPORTANT SPECIAL NOTICE:
ICA 2022 REPRESENTATIVE ASSEMBLY ELECTIONS
October 28, 2022
Dear ICA Colleague:
The International Chiropractors Association (ICA) is a responsive, accountable, democratic organization, dedicated to the founding principles of our profession. ICA, an open organization at all levels and unique among chiropractic associations, chooses its leaders through a democratic process. ICA’s strength flows from the input, insight, dedication and service of its members. This is an invitation to you to join that process by taking a leadership role in your Association by serving as Assembly Representative for your state, province, or country.
This year we are changing the process in two ways. First, all jurisdictions are up for nominations/election this year – and going forward we will hold elections every two years. Second, we are converting to online voting through a secure voting software. Attached to this message is the intent to run form and information. Deadline to submit is November 19.
INCUMBENTS MUST DECLARE THEIR INTENT TO RUN; YOU WILL NOT BE AUTOMATICALLY PLACED ON THE BALLOT
I invite you to carefully consider if this is a leadership role in which you are interested in serving. If so, enliven the democratic process and support ICA’s leadership in the profession by running for this important office. All RAs are expected to attend our annual meeting in Las Vegas on April 20-22, 2023.
If you have any questions on any aspect of this process, please do not hesitate to contact ICA Executive Director, at the ICA headquarters toll free from the United States and Canada at 1-800-423-4690, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your attention to this very important matter. I look forward to an exciting election season for ICA, and a bright future because of all the strengths and values the democratic process signifies.
I also want to share with you that we will be holding our Annual Convention that includes the Board and Assembly Meetings, but also includes continuing education opportunities and our general members meeting April 20-22, 2023, in Las Vegas, Nevada. All ICA members are invited and encouraged to attend.
Yours in Service,
Brian Moriarty, DC, FICA
