The International Affiliated Organisations

18 Specialist International Organisations are affiliated to ICOM. Their role is to bring together a particular type of museum or group of museums and / or museum professionals in a specific region.
Affiliated Organisations contribute to the development of ICOM's network of specialists.
Members of ICOM may ask to join an Affiliated Organisation.
Although they remain self-governing bodies, these organisations participate in some of ICOM's activities and are represented by their president at the ICOM Advisory Committee.
Any International Organisation whose membership is composed of at least two third of museums or museum professionals may become an Affiliated Organisation of ICOM.
