Moving to election of Programme Commission (PCOM) positions by the ICA membership is intended to promote both transparency and diversity in the Commission.  By voting with these ICA goals in mind, you play an important role in making PCOM reflect the global community of archivists in ICA. 
The call for self-nominations period ran for one month between August 9 to September 8 2021, and we received 17 nominations in total, with 11 nominations put forward for the consideration of the membership. A criteria for the nomination process was that they could only be received from ICA members in good standing, meaning that their membership dues were up to date and that nominees were archivists by profession.  
We are now opening a general election for two (2) PCOM positions. Newly elected members will join and complement ongoing members of PCOM (see below).  Please keep the distribution and expertise of the ongoing members, described below, in mind as you vote.
