ICCA Board meeting IMEX Frankfurt 2022

I believe the power of ICCA is in its people. In you. In all of us thinking together, working together and collaborating together as a community to achieve development and progress for our businesses and for the meetings industry as a whole. 

12 years of commitment to ICCA

I have volunteered and dedicated my time and energy to the association for the last 12 years, from the grass roots level to occupy today the most senior role on the Board.

I’ve been an active member since I first participated in an ICCA congress in 2006. I was immediately drawn to this vibrant international community where knowledge exchange is open and friendly. I was soon interested in participating more in the life of the association, and giving something back to this amazing community where I learned so much.

I started by becoming Chair of the France-Benelux Chapter from 2009-2015 and was elected to the Board in November 2015 to represent the European Region. I was then chosen by the President to become a member of the Management and Finance Committee, and shortly after became 1st Vice President.

I have a good understanding of what the role entails in terms of commitment to our association and its members worldwide.

I have the support of my husband and my 3 children. They have of course heard about ICCA and even listened in on a few calls during holidays and weekends 😊

My husband and family

As an ordinary member, I propose Mrs Marta Gomes, the current ICCA 1stVice President as the candidate for ICCA President. Being on the Board over the last two years provide me the opportunity to get to know Marta better as a fellow Board member and as a colleague. She gives priority to membership views and she is very passionate about the meetings industry, especially on how our members could revive from this pandemic. I optimistically believe that Marta is the perfect candidate choice for ICCA President, as she is passion driven and results orientated.

Marta is a great professional, but above all a great person, with great sensitivity and awareness of the needs that an organization like ICCA must face. I shared the ICCA Board with her for several years, I know how she thinks and how she works, that's why I am convinced that her leadership will be key for the growth of ICCA in upcoming years.
