Additional information:

  • Please do not record the webinar. The webinar will be recorded and made publicly available on the Young ICCA website, which in some circumstances may allow you to be identified, such as if you submit a written question and the organiser refers to you by name. It is possible that this may result in the processing of your personal data within the meaning of data protection legislation (such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation). You can avoid this processing by asking that your question be posed anonymously (for questions submitted before the webinar) or by joining the webinar using a pseudonym (for questions submitted via the Q&A or chat function). Any processing that does take place will be necessary for the legitimate interests of ICCA in replicating the workshop-style setting by allowing participants to be identified unless they do not want to be.
  • Please do not share the Zoom access link with non-registered people, this link is personal to you.
  • During the webinar, participants may be able to see the usernames of other participants. Although the organisers expect that participants will want to use their actual name and affiliation as a username (e.g. Lucy Burns, ICCA Bureau), this is not mandatory and you can join using a pseudonym if you wish.
  • If your registration for the webinar has been confirmed but you are unable to attend, please cancel your participation to allow others to attend in your place.
  • The Young ICCA Co-Chairs will select a participant to prepare a written summary of the webinar for the website. If you would like to be considered, please contact us after the webinar at
