About Icograda Platforms

At the 25 General Assembly (November 2013, Montreal), Icograda established three member-category ‘Platforms’ with the aim of enhancing member involvement in Icograda projects and activities. By addressing cross-disciplinary, professional and organizational challenges, as well as focusing on specific discipline issues happening within Educational, Professional and Promotional ‘Platforms’, the Annual Platform Meetings were conceived of with the goal of increasing member involvement in determining Icograda policies, benefits and strategy.
