|Benefits of an ICA Membership|
ICA's annual three-day conference gives members an opportunity to participate in establishing a comprehensive picture of IT trends around the world. The Annual Conference's 'round table' allows each member country to report on major events related to the management and use of IT and to solicit assistance from colleagues. Additionally, the working group sessions provide an opportunity for debate with other ICA members and for the identification and analysis of significant topics important to all jurisdictions.
ICA provides access to timely and relevant IT information. The Internet provides access to the ICA web site (managed in the UK) and to those functions that allow communication with ICA colleagues in 25 countries.
ICA-sponsored Study Groups provide valuable experience in working with colleagues from other countries and with different cultures on practical issues of common infrastructure and policy. ICA Study Groups have a history of anticipating worldwide issues of major concern to IT managers and public policy executives.
ICA membership facilitates the building of IT contacts in 25 countries and other major organizations. These contacts help members, their governments and allied organizations to base the planning and implementation of their IT activities on knowledge of what works across the world.
