Policy Advisory Panel

Icon's dedicated forum enables members to shape Icon’s advocacy by sharing knowledge and experience and offering expert advice

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.

In 2017 Icon set up a Policy Advisory Panel to empower members to contribute to the development of Icon’s messages to decision-makers and to influence policies affecting conservation. 

With over 100 members working across specialisms, regions and sectors, the Panel is a diverse group, offering varied and representative views on the hottest topics in conservation.
