Announcing our New Public Name: World Heritage USA

Recognizing the need to reach more people who care about our shared global heritage, the board of trustees has decided to adopt the public-facing name World Heritage USA. This replaces the acronym US/ICOMOS. We remain officially the United States National Committee of the International Council on Monuments and Sites, 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: 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.
