ICID workbodies play a key role in identifying improved practices in its core areas of irrigation, drainage, and flood management and promoting them through National Committees. Presently, ICID has 27 workbodies (permanent committees, working groups, and task forces) which currently are represented by over 220 professionals from amongst the active member countries across the world.
All the National Committees are invited to nominate their professionals / experts for the membership for a concerned workbody according to their relevant expertise so as to contribute effectively to its activities. While nominating the experts, National Committees may like to assure that the nominee is able to devote sufficient time to the Workbody activities at least for the next three years. Nominations received from National Committees will be reviewed at the respective workbody meetings to be held in Mardin, Turkey in October 2013. Proposal may also be sent for replacement of existing members, if any. While nominating, please keep in mind ICID By-law 3.6.
If you are interested in nominating, please send your curriculum vitae, contact coordinates (postal address, e-mail, contact telephone/ cell no) along with letters of assurance of active participation to IAL support office (firstname.lastname@example.org) preferably by 1st July 2013. IAL will then forward to ICID for consideration. It is desirable that the nominated member attends the concerned workbody meeting to be held at Mardin, Turkey.
