How to plan an Icon Event

Icon’s professional standards can be used in many ways. One important way to implement them is to indicate how an Icon event can support and uphold these standards throughout the full programme of Icon events that are planned.

Here are some basic steps to help plan an event by indicating which specific Icon professional standards will be addressed by the event, as well as the judgement and ethics that are most applicable to the content of the event and at what level it will be delivered e.g. someone at the start of their career or for members of more than one level in the ‘ Novice to Expert’ range.

Postprints Guidelines

There is often substantial demand for postprints, particularly after larger conferences and symposium - and these can often provide a worthwhile legacy for such events that can help funders to recognise the value of support for the event, either for individual delegates or as an opportunity for sponsorship.

The postprints section of the Icon website was designed as a permanent home for Group postprints, which could be uploaded in a consistent look and style.

If you're considering the provision of postprints after your event, advance planning is critical - so have a word with Icon's Digital Content Officer at web@icon.org.uk at the earliest opportunity to talk through your idea and discuss timescales. 

Sending an Iconnect

Iconnects can be dispatched to all Icon members subscribing to a particular Group, or to the membership at large.

Prepare a brief writeup of your event in 'Word' format:

  • Date, Place, Time
  • Cost
  • Brief description/outline
  • Link to Eventbrite registration portal

Once you've got all that down, select an eye-catching image (one you've got the rights to use!) and send to Icon's Membership Officer on membership@icon.org.uk

Icon's Membership Officer will convert your Word document and image into a nicely-designed e-bulletin, and send it back to you for your approval. 

The Membership Officer will also liaise with you over any timing issues that might be considered to make sure your message gets through to the widest audience intended - for example, if there are already too many Iconnects in the queue that day!
