Results of the PCOM Elections 2022

Thank you to all the candidates for seats on ICA's Programme Commission (PCOM) and to the ICA members who voted in the first full PCOM election under the recently revised ICA Constitution and Internal Regulations.  

We had an excellent slate of candidates. With the following newly elected members, the Programme Commission will include archivists and records professionals from all four of ICA's regions: Europe and North America, Asia and the Pacific, Africa and the Arab States, and Latin America and the Caribbean. For the first time, the Programme Commission will also include an indigenous archivist. In addition, we are happy to introduce three new specialized seats on the Commission, as elected by current members of PCOM from among the nominees.
