ICCR’s overall strategic direction is set by a Governing board, which is elected by our faith-based members from among two of ICCR’s three membership groups – our full, faith-based member institutions and our associate member institutions. The Board has an Executive Committee, comprised of the Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. The Governing Board oversees the Executive Director, approves strategic plans and budgets and determines policy.
How long do Directors serve and how often are elections held?
Each Director serves a three-year term and may serve no more than two consecutive terms. Elections are held on an annual basis. Director terms are staggered, meaning director terms expire at different times.
ICCR’s work is further guided by four standing committees – the Finance Committee, the Development Committee, Personnel Committee, and the Nominating Committee, each of which contain between 5 and 8 members.
ICCR's bylaws describe its purpose, its different categories of membership, the frequency with which its members meet, their powers and duties, the number, tenure and election of its Board of Directors, and the election and qualification of its officers, ICCR's standing committees, its special committees, and its priority issue groups.

ICCR’s Strategic Plan
ICCR’s work is guided by a five year strategic plan that sets out specific goals and achievement benchmarks, covering impact, sustainability, and leadership. At the end of each five-year cycle, progress towards our multiple goals is evaluated and the strategic plan is adjusted. Responsive to the context of emerging issues, ICCR also undergoes a formal issue prioritization process every five years to determine how staffing and other resources are allocated.
