Welcome to the new website for ICDA.
While still under construction, new information is being added daily.
Most pages in this website are PRIVATE member-only pages -- meaning you will have to log in to see information about your district, an R&S area, ICDA events, contact info, etc.
ICDA members: You should have received an email via Weebly asking you to join the ICDA pages on August 27th, 2015. If you did not receive an invitation please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Mass Email System
I would like to send a mass email out to the membership, either to all members or a specific set of members. Who should I contact?
All of the current board members have access to the mass email system. Please contact a current board member or email@example.com, and if your request is deemed appropriate under the guidelines for our mass email system, your email will be sent.
