ICAM provides a forum for professionals active in the field of preserving and exhibiting architectural records. ICAM provides members with the opportunity to exchange information on exhibitions, publications and architecture. It organises a congress once every two or three years and publishes the proceedings of these congresses. Twice a year, it publishes a newsletter, ICAM News. It also regularly updates the ICAM Register, a listing that provides crucial information on the collections of all member institutions.
