IACCM Council

We would like to inform all members that we have decided to move the date of the IACCM Council Elections that were due to take place at the end of 2019. 


Council Elections will now take place in June 2020 with the new term beginning on July 1st 2020 for one year.  As this is the Council’s inaugural year, we would like to give our current Council Members more time to settle into their role. The election process will begin in April 2020.  Further details regarding the elections will be sent out nearer the time.  If you would like more information about the IACCM Council and the election process, please contact Jennifer Jarrard.

The Benefits of Membership Council

Membership provides a high-status leadership opportunity with the ability to network with like-minded peers across geographical and industry boundaries. Members of the Council will be invited to regular, private briefings on key trends in the industry to ensure they are always fully informed.

At an Association level, election to the Council is a direct route for members wishing to be considered for a place on the IACCM Board. Four Council Members will be elected by their peers to the Board.

In addition, Council Members receive a 50% (non-transferable) discount on IACCM Conference fees.
