Day one was about sharing objective level data. Using the historical scan method, the board shared history of ICA and ICAI, and then reviewed the 'State of the World' of ICAI membership by continent, our global governance and finances, global ICA mission & values and the ICAI vision, and 'peer-to-peer' approach articulated by the ICAI General Assembly in 2010.
The following three days were focused on articulating the contradictions to that vision (reflective level) and developing strategic directions (interpretive level) and action steps and implementation plans (decisional level). Members confirmed their roles on the board, and reviewed role descriptions as a prelude to implementation planning. The meeting was successful in reaching all of its aims and energizing the board to work dutifully on fostering peer to peer spaces for member ICA's.
