ICA Fellows


For members of the global archival community, being named an ICA Fellow represents an enormous honour. The Fellows programme is designed to recognise and celebrate extraordinary contributions made by professionals to the archives and records management fields.  

The Fellows Award forms a central pillar of the ICA’s efforts to promote and spotlight the outstanding work undertaken by members of our community across the world and, as the ranks of our Fellows grow, we hope their example will inspire and motivate the work of the archival community for years to come!  

The names of our newest Fellows, selected from a host of excellent candidates by the Fellows Committee, were announced at the ICA Congress in Abu Dhabi.
