Call for Nominations
Mobile Communication Division
We are currently soliciting nominations and self-nominations for the position of Vice-Chair of the ICA Mobile Communication Division. This key leadership position provides the individual with opportunity to help shape and advance the division, the sub-discipline, and enable our growing division to continue to thrive. The term of the Vice-Chair would begin on the last day of the ICA Annual Conference in Toronto, Canada (2023), and is a four-year commitment serving two years as Vice-Chair and then assuming the position of Chair for two years.
Description and Duties of the Vice-Chair
The Vice-Chair is a member of the division’s executive committee. As stated in the Mobile Communication ByLaws:
The Vice-Chair shall assist the Chair in administering Section business meetings; participate with the Chair in evaluating the quality of Section convention programs; administer the selection of competitive and noncompetitive papers/programs for conventions and notify contributors and the Association of papers/programs that are selected. The Vice-Chair shall also assist the Chair when requested, and assume the duties of Chair in the event of the latter’s absence, disability, or request.
Perhaps the main task of the Vice-Chair is the planning of the Mobile Communication pre-conference in Gold Coast, Australia (2024) and Denver, USA (2025). Subsequently, as Chair, the individual would have the primary responsibility to plan the Division program for the 2026 Latin America—country/city TBD and 2027 Chicago, USA conferences.
