Chair’s Message

In these extraordinary times, the ICOM Australian Executive Board will continue to work with the both the Australian and International museums community to remain connected and to support the industry in these challenging times.

AGM and election

We have taken the step to postpone our AGM and election. We are working through our rules and regulations with regards to postponement and extension of the current committee; however, we intend to have an AGM and election completed later this year. The nomination forms remain online and please do continue to consider joining the Executive Board or send to enthusiastic colleagues. We are particularly keen to see nominations from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ICOM members and those from the Pacific Islands community to join the Executive.

ICOM Awards

The ICOM Awards remain open to nominations. We have opted to extend the nomination period for the Awards with an aim to present them at a later date in the year.

We encourage both individual and organisation nominations for international contributions and projects.

Bushfire, floods, Covid-19

We continue to work with our colleagues at the Australian Museums and Galleries Association and Blue Shield Australia. We encourage all members to remain up to date with news via these two domestic channels.
