Meet the candidates running in the 2023 Young ICCA Co-chair Elections

Current Young ICCA Co-chair Maria Athanasiou is approaching the end of her two-year term. This means the time has come to elect a new Co-chair. We have two excellent candidates lined up to take over the role and we leave the final selection down to you, the Young ICCA Members.


Candidates Rohit Bhat and Bart Wasiak are both well-acquainted with Young ICCA and already have great plans for the role should they be selected. The candidate who receives the most votes in the upcoming elections will replace Maria in April and serve a two-year term as one of the three Young ICCA co-chairs. Both candidates have completed the Young ICCA Proust questionnaire to help you make your choice.
