Forum of National Archivists

The Forum of National Archivists (FAN) is empowered to develop high-level strategic responses to the contemporary challenges of managing archives.

FAN aims to support all members of the ICA by developing strategic responses that may be applied by all levels of membership and not just those eligible for membership of FAN.

FAN is autonomous in that it determines its own agenda and priorities. FAN works within the ICA and with other ICA bodies through the FAN President’s membership on the ICA’s Executive Board. It communicates with ICA members through reports to the General Assembly and conferences and where appropriate through collaboration with PCOM as well as with the ICA’s expert groups and sections.
