Email has become a way of life, and ICA uses it extensively—for billing, program assignments, member- ship, and just about every other communication we have with our members—and it usually works just ﬁne. Occasionally, however, we run into problems (or you do) because you use a different email address from the one ICA has in our records for you. The result can be duplication or miscommunication. Consider your email address your unique identiﬁer for all ICA purposes and please use only one email address for all your ICA business. That makes our job easier and results in better service to you.
