In order to comply with new Constitution, the two ICNCT Chairs must have staggered terms separated by two years in order to facilitate planning of the next two upcoming biennial International Congresses. Thus, any time we will select a new candidate for ICNCT, the Chair will enter in the EB 2 years after the election. In this way, the Organizer of the current ICNCT, will stay for 2 years more in the EB to help the next Organizer, and then will leave his/her place to the next-next Organizer, that will benefit from the experience of EB for ICNCT preparation.Last Amended: 14 January 2018
