ICA Events: Many Ways to Engage the Issues

ICA organises at least one major governance and professional programme event every year. It is always the high point in ICA’s calendar and includes the General Assembly, the Executive Board and Programme Commission meetings, and Branches and Sections also hold joint meetings, AGMs and Steering Committee meetings at this time. 

Every second year (excluding Congress years), there is also the Biennial Conference, with a programme of lectures, panel debates, workshops and discussions around current professional challenges and issues. 

Every fourth year ICA holds the quadrennial International Council on Archives Congress.

The Branches and Sections also hold their own events, mostly conferences, which ICA supports and details of which can be found here.

ICA sometimes works with partners to organize events, or to support them in some way, such as providing an expert to give a presentation or deliver a workshop.
