Statute

In June 2004 the Slovene National Committee of the International Council of Museums (ICOM) adopted a new statute. This statute included the important new provision that the ICOM Slovenia is a voluntary, independent, non-profit association of physical persons who come together in the field of museum activities and heritage protection in connection with educational, promotional and other activities. This provision means that the ICOM is able to apply for financial support from the Republic of Slovenia’s Ministry of Culture. On 15 March 2006 the Slovene National Committee of the International Council of Museums was included on the register of organisations working in the public interest.

On the basis of the resolution of the extraordinary correspondence meeting of the AGM of the Slovene National Committee of the ICOM (16.12.2005) submitted to the Ministry of Culture on 20 December 2005 and Article 4 of the Act Regulating the Realisation of the Public Interest in Culture (Ur. 1. RS, št. 96/02), Articles 55 and 56 of the Act Regulating the Realisation of the Public Interest in the Field of Culture (Ur. 1. RS, št. 75/94), and the Regulations on Organisations Working in the Public Interest in the Field of Culture (Ur. 1. RS, št. 64/99 and 96/02 – order US), the Slovene National Committee of the ICOM was granted the status of an organisation working in the public interest. The decision from the Ministry of Culture was received on 23 March 2006. On 6 March 2013 the AGM confirmed important additions to the statute defining the role of honorary members and the awarding of ICOM Slovenia awards.
