The ICC’s quarterly meetings of the Board and Committees will be held in Dubai on February 8 and 9. Among other items on the agenda, the ICC is likely to consider applications for the post of an independent woman director.

The ICC at its last AGM in London in June 2017 had taken a decision to induct an independent woman director into the Board with voting right.
