ICA Regional Conferences


ICA encourages/sponsors regional conferences across the world, particularly in areas where ICA is not very well known (e.g., South America, China, Africa, certain parts of Europe like France), in order to increase visibility and provide a greater diversity to ICA membership and scholarship. ICA does not believe that the responsibility for these conferences should rest on the shoulders of its divisions or interest groups, though they are encouraged to be involved in any planning they wish.
