FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

New ICSD President

The ICSD Executive Board wishes to announce the appointment of the ICSD Vice President of World Sports, Mr. Kang CHEN, to the vacant President position according to the ICSD Bylaws Article 3.2.f.  as the ICSD Interim President with immediate effect until the next ICSD Congress scheduled for 2019.

Kang Chen has a long history with ICSD that goes back to working with the Organising Committee of the Taipei Summer Deaflympics in 2009. He was elected for second term as Vice President-World Sports at the recent Congress in Samsun, Turkey and is well known to many for his work with our community of Technical Directors.

The ICSD Executive Board believes Kang will provide the stability in leadership at a time when we are carving out a strong, sustainable future for ICSD.

The ICSD Executive Board is deeply grateful to Ms. Rebecca ADAM for her capable leadership of the ICSD from August 2018 until 21 June 2019.
