Hot contest for Icon board places

A dozen candidates have put themselves forward for a place on Icon's Board of Trustees

The time for Icon Trustee elections has arrived and 12 candidates are fighting for five seats. This may well be a record, likely prompted by interest in helping us develop our strategy for the next three years.

Please watch out for an email inviting you to vote online. Our new system, run by Mi-Voice, will make voting easy: you can vote anywhere that your device will connect to the internet. To ensure you receive the Mi-Voice email, please add their domain ( to the approved senders list on your email system. Instructions are available for Outlook and Gmail among others. 

With so many excellent candidates standing, it is particularly important that every eligible member casts a vote, so please look out for the email and cast your vote no later than 5pm on Monday 5th December 2016.

On a related note, we have now published the Trustees’ Annual Report which reviews the year ending 31st March 2016. We hope you can attend the Icon 12th Annual General Meeting to ask questions about the report and learn about progress on the strategy. If not, you can of course vote by proxy via Mi-Voice. The AGM is at 5pm on 7th December at St. Bride Foundation, Bride Lane, Fleet Street, London, EC4Y 8EQ. The event is free for Icon members, but please let us know if you are planning to attend, so that we may estimate numbers for catering. We look forward to seeing you there!
