In an effort to increase the communication between local child neurology societies and the International Child Neurology Association (ICNA), the ICNA Executive Board has approved a newly formed Council of Delegates (COD). Our long term plan is to have each national or regional child neurology society send a delegate to the Council of Delegates (COD).


To date, the COD includes over 40 child neurology organizations. The mission of this COD will be to increase communication and foster collaboration among our local child neurology societies, and between these local societies and the ICNA. The delegates to the COD are determined by each local society.

The ICNA Educational Committee seeks to support speakers from ICNA to regional pediatric or child neurology conferences. The ICNA would support round trip economy airfare for a speaker to give 2 talks at a local conference. The local conference committee would be responsible for housing and registration. Please contact Prof. Kenneth J Mack  for more details.

If you would like to contribute any items to future editions of the ICNA  Newsletter, please let Professor Ken Mack or Professor Wilmshurst know. If you would like to make any contributions to the website ( ), please let Prof Ken Mack or Dr Biju Hameed aware of your needs.The COD is a very exciting development for the ICNA. We truly believe that this effort will help to foster international communication and collaboration.

ICNA Council Of Delegates

The Council of Delegates is loosely based on the WFN and will be made up of a delegate from each national or regional child neurology society.The purpose of this COD will be to increase communication and foster collaboration among the regional societies, and between these local societies and the ICNA.The delegates to the COD would be determined by each local society.

Prof Kenneth J. Mack will serve as liaison between the ICNA Board and the ICNA COD.The list has different levels of representation from major organizations to smaller groups. The COD is not a fixed exclusive group but an open committee but would not have specific “power” or voting rights over ICNA.
