The ballot ends on the 31st October 2017.

The way that IIC sends emails has changed and it now includes an external provider: Campaign Monitor.

Mass emails to the membership or to the subscribers of News in Conservation will be delivered by Campaign Monitor. This change was necessary to simplify the management of the thousands of emails sent from IIC each month.
