Structure of the ICC Board of Directors
Composition of the BoD
The ICC Board of Directors is composed of the elected Board Representatives from each house plus the corporate officers (Vice Presidents & the General Manager). The corporate officers are non-voting members of the Board.

Elections and Terms of Board Representatives
Each house's Board Representative is elected for a term of office of one year, coinciding with the ICC fiscal year, beginning in May and continuing until April of the following year. If the Board Rep will not be in Ann Arbor over the summer, a house may elect a temporary for the Spring and/or Summer terms, but only if that person is elected by the previous Fall/Winter house. Each co-op should hold elections in April, several weeks before the new Board term begins.
Election of the ICC President
The President of the ICC is elected in March by a vote of the entire membership. The procedure for electing the president is described in ICC By-Laws (BL 5.1, 5.2) and Standing Rules (Chap. 3).
Election of Corporate Officers (Vice Presidents)
The Vice Presidents and Treasurer are elected by the Board of Directors following the election of the ICC President. The General Manager is also considered a corporate officer. All together the corporate officers make up the Coordinating Committee, which prepares the Board meeting agendas.
Standing Committees (Board Sub-Committees)
There are currently seven standing committees, composed of Board members and other house members. All are chaired by the respective officer: Education, Membership, Recruitment, Finance, Maintenance, Development, and Diversity. The Coordinating Committee is chaired by the ICC President. Each Director must serve on at least one committee but there are no specific requirements for the number of Directors that should comprise each committee. Other interested ICC members may also join committees upon approval by the Coordinating Committee.
