Nominations/Elections- Awards will be provided at the ICDA conference. Results of election will be posted in the Board Elections Link on the website
Government Relations- Andrew has been actively seeking out other state and NCDA Government Relations officers to clarify his role and function within ICDA.
Finance Committee- ICDA owns a CD with US Bank that amounts to $5000. This is renewed annually. Jennifer advised that if ICDA ever wishes to move this money it will need to be discussed in advance.
Jennifer also wanted to alert the committee and members that the ICDA website was hacked and emails were stolen. The hackers have attempted to request money from members through those emails. ICDA will not request money from members via e-mail, and be cautious about opening or responding to suspicious e-mails.
Lance has been exploring ways for ICDA to network and become more visible within the state. Lance suggested ICDA might host an event or happy hour in conjunction or leading up to Career Development Month.
The ICDA website hosts a career blog page and invites members to contribute blog posts related to Career Development topics. Connect with Lance at firstname.lastname@example.org to submit a blog post or learn more.
