Every three years, ICOM’s General Conference gathers the international museum community around a theme chosen by the museum professionals.
The General Assembly is a decision-making organ that meets every year. It sets the functioning rules and adopts ICOM’s Strategic Plan every three years at the General Conference.
It elects the members of the Executive Council and provides it with guidelines through a set of resolutions.
The General Assembly takes place every year simultaneously with the annual meeting of the Advisory Committee and is the privileged gathering place of ICOM members.
