IIC Regional Groups

User menu

There are a number of independent associations affiliated to IIC located around the world. Over the years, various IIC Regional Groups have developed along different lines to become independent national bodies, supporting the particular needs of the conservation community in the countries concerned. 

The first Groups were those in the United Kingdom (formerly UK-IIC now known as Icon) and the United States (now the American Institute for Conservation).

There are currently eight IIC Regional Groups in the Nordic region (the Nordisk Konservatorforbund: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden), Austria, Croatia, France, Italy, Japan, Greece and Spain.

Each IIC Regional Group is required to adhere to the aims and objectives of the Institute as expressed in our Memorandum of Association; its by-laws must be approved by the IIC Council; and its officers must be members of IIC.  As a result of our Regional Groups, our combined international reach extends to nearly 7,000 members.

Globally we recognise a further 20 national level bodies, a full list is available here.
