Voting Opens for the Young ICCA Co-chair Elections

Current Young ICCA Co-chair Panagiotis Chalkias is approaching the end of his 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 Maria Athanasiou and Ana Coimbra Trigo 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 elections will replace Panagiotis in February 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.


We ask that you consider your vote carefully and wish both candidates the best of luck.
