Forums have been held around the world...

Since 1991 there have been 22 Forums in 14 countries. ICF's contact with 2,000 media people in 116 countries is maintained by a computerised mailing list. It has been through the initiative of many of these people that Forums have taken place on most continents. 

After a four-year hiatus, the ICF's merger with the International Council for Press and Broadcasting and the arrival of William Morris as the ICF's new Chairman will see a renewal of ICF activities and events, with a new conference planned for May 2014.
