CRCICA Director was very recently elected as a Member of the Governing Board of the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA) for a regular term of four years. Seven other new members were also elected. They come from Brazil, France, Canada, Singapore, USA/Hong Kong, Ireland and China.
According to ICCA, the election of this diverse group of Governing Board Members is one step in the implementation of extensive changes to ICCA’s structure and scope of activities announced during ICCA’s 2010 Congress in Rio de Janeiro. Other changes – including the creation of a new category of general ICCA membership – were launched during ICCA’s Congress that took place in Singapore from 10 to 13 June 2012. The Congress was followed by a meeting of the Governing Board on 13 June 2012 in which the newly elected members were welcomed and other matters relating to ICCA’s current and future projects and activities were discussed.
