Get involved with the future of IC! 

We are already Europe’s most influential professional body for IC. We are now embarking on the next stage of our strategy and are looking for committed  people to join the IoIC board to strengthen our voice for the internal communication profession.
 
The IoIC is now looking for members with the skills and energy needed to help take the Institute and our profession to the next level.
 
There has never been a better time to get involved with the IoIC as the IC profession continues to prove its strategic value and impact on organisational success, with a growing community of professionals becoming stronger and more determined. 
 
We’ve had great success in recent years, reaching our highest level of membership.  Our professional development is also growing rapidly with record numbers of practitioners making an investment in their future.
 
Being a Board member can be challenging but we know that it will bring a wide range of benefits for you and the IC profession.

For you:
  • Be recognised as a leader who has a strong commitment to the profession
  • Demonstrate leadership for your own career advancement and that of others in your profession
  • Have the opportunity to shape and steer the IC agenda
  • Network with peers within your profession
For the profession:
  • Advocate for the value of internal communication to business, economy and society
  • Influence standards and professionalism
  • Bring awareness and enhance the image of the profession to young and aspiring professionals
  • Deliver new thinking and debate to help boost skills and ensure practitioners are operating at the top of their game
There are three board positions to be filled and it’s a three year commitment to give you a chance to make a difference. All board members have responsibility for a specific portfolio to support the delivery of all IoIC activities encompassing; advocacy, standards, research, awards, campaigns, communications, regions, professional development and conference.  We will work with new board members to ensure the perfect portfolio match. 

As a board member, you will take a lead on setting the strategy and direction for your area. You’ll tap into the expertise and enthusiasm of our members to form smaller delivery groups as required, from shorter-term project-based activity  to ongoing involvement, according to members’ preferences and availability.

Your own commitment will combine formal board attendance (four face-to-face meetings per year; monthly board calls) with additional self-directed activity required to progress your area of focus (we find this varies between 1 – 2 days per month).

Timeline for elections:
  • Nominations due: Thursday 5th April
  • Voting opens: Monday 16 April
