ICCA Policy for Cooperation with Other Dispute Resolution Organizations
ICCA recognizes the benefit of collaborating in appropriate circumstances with other prominent dispute resolution organizations, institutes and centres in fulfilling ICCA’s mission of promoting and improving the use of arbitration and other forms of international dispute resolution.
ICCA’s policy for collaboration in selected events is as follows:
As a general rule, ICCA does not seek to engage in new collaborations with external entities, as a supporting organization or in any other official role;
Exceptions to this general rule may be made if the potential collaboration concerns an event or initiative that:
- Is linked to an ICCA Congress;
- Includes the participation in a key role of an ICCA Executive Body member or Executive Director;
- Offers exposure to one or more of ICCA’s projects or publications;
- Takes place in a region of high priority for ICCA; or
- Warrants ICCA collaboration due to other compelling reasons (as determined by ICCA office-holders and/or ICCA Bureau);
ICCA does on occasion engage in cross-marketing of appropriate events; queries in this regard should be sent to email@example.com
Malicious actors may attempt to impersonate ICCA or its staff to solicit sensitive information or funds from our members. They may use email addresses that are similar to those of ICCA staff or Governing Board members, logos or signatures to trick ICCA members into thinking that a fraudulent communication is a legitimate one from our organisation.
Please note that the ICCA Bureau, the ICCA President, and ICCA Board Members would never approach ICCA members asking for funds other than the Membership Fee or contributions to official ICCA Projects.
Pay attention to the following signs that can help you identify fraudulent messages:
unusual email sender addresses, even if they appear to be from a trusted contact within ICCA;
emails with an urgent or coercive tone;
unexpected requests for money transfers, intermediation of business or involvement in business transactions;
requests for personal or bank details, or passwords;
grammar or spelling mistakes; and
suspicious attachments or links.
Upon receipt of a suspicious email, do not respond, open any attachments or click any links; instead, close the message. If you are unsure if the email is genuine, please do not hesitate to verify the identity of the correspondent by contacting us via our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
