Shirin Gurdova elected as Young ICCA Co-chair

We are pleased to announce that Shirin Gurdova has been elected as the next Young ICCA Co-Chair.


Shirin welcomed the news of the election, saying "I am deeply honored to have been elected as the new Young ICCA Co-Chair! I am truly grateful to the Young ICCA community for its support and trust in me. Through this role, I will put all my energy to the service of the organization, continue its legacy, and further expand its reach to emerging jurisdictions".


Shirin will serve a two-year term as co-chair alongside Maria Athanasiou and Maanas Jain, whose terms end in January 2023 and August 2023 respectively.


The two candidates up for election were Shirin and Courtney Furner. We’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate both Shirin and Courtney on being the top two candidates and to thank them for participating in this year’s election.


Shirin will take office immediately, succeeding current co-chair Matthew Morantz who has been an asset to the Young ICCA community over the past two years. We thank Matthew for his contributions to Young ICCA and wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavours.
