WELCOME TO THE INTERNATIONAL
CARAVANNING ASSOCIATION

We have members in many countries, including Germany, Sweden, The Netherlands, The United States, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Japan, Norway, Denmark, Ireland, Poland, Switzerland, Spain Canada, Finland, Belgium, France, Portugal and Britain They run a varied programme of tours and rallies in many parts of the world. Rallies are static meetings, whereas tours (or "caravans") are where the group moves from place to place sometimes through more than one country and usually lasts for several weeks.

There are three types of membership of the Association:- FULL members are genuine recreational caravanners of minimum age 18. FAMILY members are designated by the Full member, but they must reside at the Full Member's permanent address. Up to two ADDITIONAL FAMILY members can be designated by the Full Member, these don't need to be immediate family members or resident with the Full Member (these members will need additional subscriptions paid and they will have no voting powers).

The Council may, at their discretion, award Life Membership in recognition of long and particularly valuable service to the Associa­tion.

In 1994, at the Association's 25th anniversary, it was decided that all current members who had attended the inaugural Rally in 1969, should be designated Founder Members.

Members who have to give up caravanning for any reason but wish to stay within the Association can apply for Associate status, this entitles them to a copy of the ICA News magazine and attend as day visitors Association events that do not require a caravan for example a winter "Get-together" at an hotel or a social function at one of the main Rallies. It does not carry any voting rights. Application for this should be made in writing to the Treasurer, confirming dis­posal of the caravan/motorhome and enclosing the appropriate fee.

On some occasions it is necessary for the Council to authorise Tem­porary Membership for an event or series of events, subject to whatever terms and conditions may be required.
