Icograda members are invited to attend the upcoming General Assembly and thereby take an active part in determining the future of Icograda. As the organisation celebrates its fiftieth year, the General Assembly will be considering important proposals to make Icograda better able to serve the international design community today and in the future.

At the GA, the current Board will report on developments, including challenges faced during the current term. In addition, the Board will present a broad spectrum of proposals resulting from an in-depth review of Icograda that is intended to set a new course for the organization, including:
  • An updated definition of the Icograda membership landscape
  • New member benefit "value propositions" for the different membership categories
  • New formats for increased and more effective member input and oversight
  • An upgraded and more equitable membership fee structure to ensure healthier financial operations
  • Amendments to the Icograda Articles and Bylaws
The GA provides Icograda members the opportunity to determine the future of Icograda, express their expectations and apply their oversight responsibilities.
