Subcommittee Breakout Room Instructions

ICSEW representatives and alternates will need to select a subcommittee at the time of registration. The registration link will have the option to select a subcommittee. You will be assigned to the subcommittee you selected at the time you register. If you select “uunsure” to which subcommittee to learn about/join, you will have the option to select one during the meeting.

Note: All ICSEW representatives are required to serve on at least one subcommittee during their term. The ICSEW has eight subcommittees to choose from: communications, conference, legislative & policy, membership, mentorship, professional development, public outreach and partnerships. Descriptions on the subcommittees’ work can be found here or by visiting each subcommittee page.
