International Committees

How can ICOM-US help facilitate your annual meeting? Check out our ICOM-US Fiscal Sponsorship Agreement Form today! 

ICOM individual members may join up to four of 32, one voting & three non-voting, international committees that bring together experts of museum specialties from all over the world. Institutional representatives may join one committee, non-voting. They define standards, develop recommendations, and share knowledge, experiences and information with ICOM members through digital media, publications, and meetings throughout the world. According to the 2019 ICOM Annual Report, there are over 22,790 international committee members around the globe. For more details about each committee, click on the links below:
