For more information about the work of ICA see:

From 20-24 August this year, Brisbane will play host to the ICA’s Annual Congress, A climate of change. This is the first time the Congress has been held in Australia so we are very excited about it!

The Congress will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre at South Bank. It features a number of keynote speakers, including Dame Stella Rimington who was an archivist in her early career before working at the British Security Service, MI5 for 40 years (as their Director General from 1992 to 1996) and then becoming a celebrated author.
