What is ICOM ?
The International Council of Museums (ICOM) is dedicated to the development of museums and the museum profession, and operates globally for the preservation of cultural heritage. Committed to the promotion and facilitation of professional cooperation, ICOM is a worldwide network for museum professionals of all disciplines and specialisations.
Created in 1946, ICOM is a non-governmental organisation maintaining formal relations with UNESCO and having a consultative status with the United Nations' Economic and Social Council.
As a non-profit organisation, ICOM is financed primarily by membership fees and supported by various governmental and other bodies. It carries out part of UNESCO's programme for museums. Based in Paris (France), the ICOM Headquarters houses both the ICOM Secretariat and the UNESCO-ICOM Museum Information Centre.

The ICOM Triennial Programme of Activities adopted by the General Assembly is implemented by the ICOM Secretariat as well as National and International Committees who contribute to the realisation of ICOM's programmes. ICOM's activities respond to the challenges and needs of the museum profession and are focussed on the following themes:
· professional cooperation and exchange
· dissemination of knowledge and raising public awareness of museums
· training of personnel
· advancement of professional standards
· elaboration and promotion of professional ethics
· preservation of heritage and combating the illicit traffic in cultural property
