ICA News & Events 



 NORTH AND SOUTH AMERICAN REGIONAL CONFERENCE

From May 10 - 14th of 2016, North and South American ICAs gathered for a Regional Conference in Peru. The gathering marked the first time the ICAs in the region had met face-to-face in over 10 years. ICA Peru hosted the meeting at their beautiful training center in Azpitia, a quaint town 2 hours outside of Lima. Azpitia was one of the ICA Peru's main project sites a few decades back, and the training center that was created during that time has been wonderfully maintained and still serves groups that ICA Peru works with. Over 15 colleagues attended, representing ICA Guatemala, ICA Peru, ICA ChileICA Associates in Canada, and ICA-USA

FACILITATION ABROAD - IAF, ToP GLOBAL, AND MORE! 

ICA-International (ICAI) and the International Association of Facilitators (IAF) have come together to form a working group consisting of three members/facilitators from each organization. The intent of the group is to explore ways the organizations can collaborate and support one another. Both organizations agree in principle to collaborate in areas of conferences, events, complementary certification, and training endorsements.

The relationship between ICAI and IAF is longstanding and well integrated. From the ICAI side of the group, the members (Larry Philbrook of ICA Taiwan, Eduard Christiansen of ICA Chile and Jane Stallman of the ToP Network in the US) will report back to Martin Gilbraith, ICAI's acting President. Martin has been involved with IAF since 1998, and served a four-year term as a Chair on their board in 2012. Members on the IAF side of the working group will report back to John Cornwell, their Regional Director for Africa, who has worked in the past with ICA in South Africa as well. Click here to read more...

 


COLLEAGUE SPOTLIGHT:

MARTIN GILBRAITH

How/when did you first encounter the ICA?
I first met ICA as a participant in the ICA:UK international volunteer programme in June 1986, so I have just passed 30 years with ICA this year - of course I was very young at the time! 
I volunteered with ICA India in the Jawale Human Development Project near Pune, and then with ICA MENA in the Bayad El Arab project in Egypt.  After I returned from Egypt in 1995 to take my masters degree in Manchester, I worked with colleagues in Britain to re-establish ICA:UK and stood down as Chief Executive in 2012. Click to learn more about Martin...


 UPTOWN INNER COASTAL INITIATIVE ROLLING OUT IN SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER

The Uptown Inner Coastal Zone Initiative (ICZ) is a community planning process to enhance awareness and stewardship of Uptown's inner coastal zone and its unique assets. The goal of the planning process is to create an actionable community plan that will set achievable short- and long-term collective goals for Uptown's inner coastal community, including residents, park users, those who work in the area, and those that transit to the coastal area to access the lakefront and Lake Shore Drive. The plan will be created through 4 community meetings, starting on 9.8.16 and ending on 10.20.16.
