How can we recruit new Committee members?

Icon has explored motivation around Committee engagement through the triennial membership survey and interviews for an article that appeared in a 2018 issue of Icon News (pages 3-4). 

Many members report becoming involved to learn new skills, to broaden personal and professional networks and to give something back to the profession - so with this in mind, as a first step it's a useful idea to look around at events.  Are there any regular attendees who might be interested in the chance to get involved? There can be no undersetimating the compliment of an invitation to join an Icon Committee - so worth bearing in mind!

Alongside this, there are larger ranks of Icon members who might not make it to events on such a regular basis who are nonetheless keen to get involved - particularly with today's methods of staying in touch remotely. An Iconnect announcement promoting available Committee roles is a clear given, and this can often provide a surefire way to draw interested members more closely into the fold.
