WHAT IS THE COMMITMENT LEVEL FOR THE ICC?

Service on the ICC begins in October and ends in June of the following year. The commitment level varies depending on a member's role within the council.

HOW ARE MEMBERS SELECTED?

Each AmeriCorps program across the state of Minnesota elects service members to be their representative(s) or ambassador(s) on the ICC. The election of these members differs from across programs. 

If you are interested in being your program's ICC representative or ambassador, please contact your program manager/supervisor to learn about the election process. 

ALREADY HAVE A REPRESENTATIVE OR AMBASSADOR?

If your program already has an ICC representative or ambassador you can stay up-to-date on all ICC events by subscribing to the ICC's Newsletter, Public Spirit.

COUNCIL HANDBOOK

In the spring of 2011, a task force created a handbook of policies and procedures for the InterCorps Council of Minnesota. It was updated in October 2016. In an effort to increase transparency, you can find the handbook here.
