ICA Wants to Attract Younger Members

The International Colored Gemstone Association is continuing its campaign to bring in younger members and will reduce its membership fees and the cost of attending the upcoming ICA Congress.

“[It is] very important that we encourage the younger generation of gemstone professionals,” ICA president Benjamin Hackman said in a statement. “We want to see as many younger members as possible attend the Congress and become involved in the organization’s activities.”

The upcoming ICA Congress, which will also feature a gem trade show, will be held May 16–19 in the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo. The registration fee for group’s junior members is being lowered from $900 to $250.
