International Council of Museums Aotearoa New Zealand (ICOMNZ)
Welcome to the web page for the New Zealand chapter of ICOM to communicate with its current and potential members.
The International Council of Museums (ICOM) is an international organisation of museums and museum professionals which is committed to the research, conservation, continuation and communication to society of the world’s natural and cultural heritage, present and future, tangible and intangible. Aotearoa New Zealand was one of the 14 founding nations of ICOM in 1946.
ICOM Aotearoa New Zealand is the New Zealand National Committee of ICOM and became an Incorporated Society in 2019. It connects those working in museums here with each other and encourages engagement and exchange with ICOM colleagues and organisations overseas.
ICOM Aotearoa New Zealand is currently changing the way that we operate, so please bear with us while we reconfigure our organisation. If you or your museum are not already members, we'd love to have you join us as we take a new direction.
Annual General Meeting 2020
Usually our AGM takes place during the Museums Aotearoa annual conference. However, due to the Covid-19 situation, our AGM will be held via Zoom on Thursday 27 August \starting at 4.30pm. See the Agenda here. Members will be sent a Zoom invitation directly.
After 25 successful editions, ICOM’s flagship triennial conference has become a worldwide hub for exchange about the topical issues museums tackle today, as well as the most innovative solutions. The next conference is planned for 2022 in Prague, Czech Republic.
ICOM's membership subscriptions run from 1 January to 31 December. All current members receive a renewal invoice in December.
Membership is arranged by the National Committee. For 2020 standard individual membership fees are $165 (no GST), or $85 for students/retirees. There is no reduced fee for joining part way through the year.
Institutional membership is also available.
