On March 31, 2015, I will end a six-year journey at the Institute of Cultural Affairs as the chief executive officer in the United States. While these years have been personally gratifying for me, my plan from the beginning was to enable, sooner rather than later, a successful transition to a new generation of leadership. Now, I believe, is the right time to make the move.
The Institute of Cultural Affairs' Board of Directors is pleased to announcethat Ted Wysockihas been appointed as the new CEO/President of ICA-USA. Ted will join the ICA early this spring.The decision was approved by the ICA's board on Feb. 16, 2015.
Earlier this month, the ToP Network held its annual conference in Aurora, Colorado. 74 people attended the event, with participants from across the United States, as well as international colleagues from Canada and Russia.
I was able to hear the inspiring ICA story from founders and early members. I also felt the excitement about future collaborations with dynamic Network members I met. Given that experience, my favorite thing about ICA is the opportunities I will have to work with so many nice people.
There are many opportunities to engage with the ICA Global Archives in the upcoming year. Starting in January 2015, a team will be EXTRACTING files from basement storage. These BASEMENT MINERS have selected one category to focus on; 'Global Research Assembly' documents will be selected by year and placed in bankers boxes, loaded onto the freight elevator and brought to the 6th floor.
