From a press release:
- The Convention Industry Council's recent decision to restructure its governance was approved on September 30, 2004.
Previously, CIC's governing body was comprised of a council in which each member organization was represented by one delegate. Additionally, a smaller group of 11 individuals made up a board of directors which held its own slate of officers.
The new structure allows for a more streamline governance in which each member organization will be represented by one delegate and one alternate. In an effort to allow for greater participation, CIC is urging member organizations to appoint an individual in a volunteer leadership position to act as the organization's alternate. In the event that the main delegate is not available to vote on an issue, the alternate will stand in. Although each organization only receives one vote, both representatives will be involved in meetings and programs. The new structure will provide a better forum for interaction and cooperation among the many sectors of the meetings, conventions and exhibitions industry represented by CIC members.
