ICA Membership Benefits

Author(s):
ICA Secretariat
Date Added:
01 June 2022

We would like to share with our members the ICA Membership Benefits presented as a grid so you can find the benefits offered to each member depending on their category.  

Membership Type Description 
Category A Central archive directorates or national archival institutions
Category B National or International professional Associations
Category C Institutions concerned with the administration or preservation of records and archives or in archival training and education
Category D Individual Members

 

The ICA Membership Benefits grid is a reference document developed and updated by the ICA Secretariat and validated by the Executive Board.  

The membership benefits will be regularly updated depending on the strategic orientations of the organisation and will be added as an appendix to the membership scale of dues presented at the governance meetings

The membership benefits have been tailored depending on the status of your membership. Do you know if you are a member in good standing or in arrears?  

An institutional member can be:

  • In good standing: dues of the year paid
  • Pending renewal: dues of the year not paid
  • In arrears: dues of the previous year not paid

An individual member can be:

  • In good standing
  • Lapsed

At the beginning of the year, members are given a grace period of 3 months to renew their membership. During this amount of time, they are considered in good standing.

If you have any questions about the status of your institutional or individual membership, please contact us at members@ica.org
