About Icograda Platforms

At the 25 General Assembly (November 2013, Montreal), Icograda established the Professional, Educational and Promotional member-category ‘Platforms’ with the aim of enhancing member involvement in Icograda projects and activities.

The Platform format will enable the development of tangible benefits for members; amongst which are the annual Platform Meetings.  Icograda is currently conducting a series of focused member surveys to ascertain expectations, potential benefits, challenges and other issues of relevance. The results of these surveys are being utilized to determine the themes, scope and schedule for each Platform Meeting and to assist in defining and redefining Icograda policies and development.
