ConferenceIn 2021, the ICOM General Assembly will be held online again

Given that the pandemic is still with us, travel restrictions and our concern for the safety and health of all ICOM Members and staff, the Annual Meetings will be held online for the second time.

All ICOM members in good standing are invited to attend online ICOM Extraordinary General Assembly (18 June 2021, 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Paris time) and the ICOM 36th Ordinary General Assembly (18 June 2021, 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., Paris time).

All members will be able to watch the meeting live via webcast. For security reasons, the link will be sent to each member by email and posted in the membership space. The meeting will be recorded and members will be able to watch it for a limited time after the meeting in the membership space.

Due to technical constraints, English will be the main language to be used during the meeting and simultaneous interpretation into French and Spanish will be provided throughout the meeting.

To provide the best possible experience for ICOM Members, we have prepared guidelines which will be available in the member’s area, as well as working documents.

For, as the organisation of this meeting poses a real challenge from a technical point of view and taking into account the very large number of ICOM Members (over 48,000 Members worldwide), only one representative per Committee/Regional Alliance/Affiliated Organisation (appointed by the Chairs) will be able to speak on behalf of their Committee/Regional Alliance/Affiliated Organisation.

To ensure that the meetings run as efficiently as possible, we would be very grateful if you could send all questions relating to the working documents to the Chair or Secretary of your National or International Committee, Regional Alliance or Affiliated Organisation, who will be responsible of forwarding them to the ICOM Secretariat by Friday 28 May 2021 (00:00 CET).

We will also encourage participation on social media via the hashtag #AnnualMeetings.

We look forward to sharing this special moment with the ICOM community!
