Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Australia ICOMOS had to make the difficult decision to cancel the GA2020 meeting foreseen in Sydney.
Following this decision, the President of ICOMOS, at the request of a majority of the members of the Board, convened an online General Assembly on 23 and 24 July, whose sole purpose was to seek the agreement of the ICOMOS membership to hold all forthcoming 2020 statutory meetings as virtual meetings (i.e. the Triennial General Assembly, Advisory Committee, Board and Bureau meetings), taking into account the current global situation. More than 90% of the voting members voted in favour of the Board’s proposal.
The 20th ICOMOS General Assembly will therefore take place virtually between 3 and 16 December 2020. There will be three or four short Zoom meetings corresponding to the votes on resolutions and the successive stages of the elections. Voting will again take place via the Euro-vote platform.
Further information will be provided by the beginning of October and we hope that many of you will join us in December.
