Introducing World Heritage USA, the United States National Committee of the International Council on Monuments and Sites

Recognizing the need to reach more people who care about our shared global heritage, the board of trustees has decided to rebrand US/ICOMOS as World Heritage USA, the United States National Committee of the International Council on Monuments and Sites. While maintaining our connection to ICOMOS and legal identity as the United States National Committee of the International Council on Monuments and Sites, we are now World Heritage USA, the primary U.S. organization supporting the World Heritage Convention and a wide spectrum of preservation activity both in the U.S. and abroad.

This effort is a refinement of our mission and programs. As US/ICOMOS has done for over fifty years, World Heritage USA will continue to promote the conservation of heritage globally while fostering connections to the international heritage community. We accomplish this through advocacy, education, and the exchange of people and ideas. Our International Members will continue to be ICOMOS members and our relationship within ICOMOS will not change.
