Conference and Election Results
ICUH 2011 was a great success, and lots of exciting developments are on the way for the society. Keep watching this space for a major update to the website, as well as information on how to get involved with implementing the ISUH Strategic Plan.
"Please note the ISUH has implemented a new policy in which there will no longer be an annual ICUH. Instead, the ICUH will occur biannually. Therefore, being that there was an ICUH in 2011, there will NOT be a conference in 2012. Please stay tuned for updates regarding the next ICUH."
Please extend a warm welcome to new and returning board members. A roster for the 2012 board can be found here.
