You are urged to serve ICP as a Treasurer for one year: September 1, 2002-August 31, 2003. The Treasurer is a member of the Executive Committee.
It is an important elected office. Yet due to Dr. Lenore Walker's resignation, on account of health and overwork, the position is available and badly needed for a year. In the next elections, the position will be voted on. According to American regulations, the Treasurer must be an American citizen, since ICP has been certified, in the US, as a Non-Profit Organization.
