Policy Advisory Panel

About the Icon Policy Advisory Panel

Icon members possess a wealth of expertise, experience and information relating to heritage. Their first-hand experience of conservation and the profession gives them an edge in evaluating how policy developments can impact the sector.

Icon has consequently set up a forum through which to consult its members on key issues. Our Policy Advisory Panel enables members to contribute to the development of Icon’s messages to decisionmakers and to influence policies affecting conservation. With over 100 members working across specialisms, regions and sectors, the Panel is a truly diverse group, offering varied and representative views on the hottest topics in conservation.

The image below demonstrates the central role that consultation plays in the lifecycle of an Icon policy paper.
