Members work together to raise standards of quality, address ethical issues, harmonise professional PR consultancy practice, and share knowledge. Through the online directory, ICCO also acts as a matchmaker between consultancies in different countries. Members have an opportunity to meet in person twice a year at meetings of the Board, at the bi-annual ICCO Global Summit and at any number of ICCO partner events.
