What is the role of an ICIA Committee?
ICIA committees guide the planning and development of InfoComm, membership policies and education training programs.
What is the role of an ICIA Council?
Volunteer members work in councils to develop programs that benefit ICIA members and the industry as a whole.
Why should I get involved?
Discuss common concerns; share ideas with your peers in the industry; participate in survey development; suggest an InfoComm event or ICIA member benefit; and gain professional recognition for you and your company.
How much time and effort are involved?
Most members contribute a few hours of their time each month, usually at quarterly audio
conference meetings or by participating in listservs (e-mail discussion groups). The chairperson of each group serves on the ICIA Board of Governors and must be willing to devote time to Board duties.
How does ICIA cover the costs of programs and events?
ICIA funds the basic costs for virtual meetings as well as a meeting at InfoComm each year. Additional projects, including surveys, summits and special events at InfoComm, are approved for funding by the Board of Governors on a case by case basis.
