ICDD Spring Meetings Banner



The ICDD Spring meetings will be held 19-23 March 2012, at the ICDD Headquarters, 12 Campus Boulevard, Newtown Square, PA.

In keeping with the mission of the ICDD, we will continue with our format of exchanging ideas and information by augmenting our typical committee and subcommittee meetings by hosting a Plenary Session, social event and Poster Session on Tuesday, 20 March 2012. As in past years, spouses and guests are welcome to attend these events, but we need to know of your attendance for planning purposes.

Please note that the Annual Meeting of Members is scheduled for the afternoon of 22 March 2012. If you are an active ICDD member and are unable to attend the Annual Meeting of Members, you may choose to designate an attending member to serve as your proxy by completing the Proxy form that was emailed to you. Your designated proxy will hold full power of substitution to vote on your behalf, in the event that any general issues arise during that meeting that require a vote of the ICDD membership. Returning this form maintains your status as an active member.

During the meeting, ICDD members will be asked to adopt amendments to ICDD’s Bylaws, recently proposed by the Board of Directors. Members of record on 22 March 2012, have the right to vote at the meeting. On 23 January 2012, members were sent, via email, a proxy form to complete. If you prefer to complete a hardcopy proxy form, please contact the ICDD Bylaws Chairman at BylawsChair@icdd.com. This proxy must be received before 22 March 2012; it should be completed and returned even if you elect to abstain from the votes. [Please note that this proxy will only apply to the vote on the Bylaws Amendments.]

Committees, Subcommittees and Task Groups will meet in accordance with the meeting schedule. All information regarding the meetings can be found here in the 2012 Spring Meetings subsite.
During your visit to ICDD headquarters, we will have internet access available in all conference rooms and dining areas through a wireless connection. We will also have internet connection through our computers in the computer lab in Conference Room B.

We look forward to your attendance and participation at the meetings. Thank you for your cooperation.

ICDD Executive Director
