Do you want to gain a deeper insight into a community of museum professionals dedicated to the advancement of museum practices worldwide, through discussions, professional exchanges, and research?

Please join us on June 29 from 3:00-4:30pm EDT / 1:00-2:30pm MDT and learn about ICOM Canada, the Canadian National Committee of the International Council of Museums. Registration for this event closes on June 24 at 4:30 p.m. MDT. The link to the event will be shared with registrants closer to the date.

ICOM is the international organization of museums and museum professionals which is committed to the conservation, continuation and communication to society of the world’s natural and cultural heritage, present and future, tangible and intangible. 

In this session, we will hear from a number of the board members of ICOM Canada about the various activities and ongoing projects of the organization and learn about the benefits of joining this international museum community. We will answer any questions that you might have about the work of ICOM Canada.
