ICT Members Vote to Join IOM3
Members of the Institute of Clay Technology (ICT) voted in favour of merger
with the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining at their EGM on 14
October 2005. After a consultation process which has involved discussion
with individual members, local societies and industry bodies, ICT members
voted in proportion 2 to 1 to join IOM3.
The final confirmation of the merger will be made by the IOM3 Council on 3
November, paving the way for the transfer of ICT membership and activities
to IOM3 by the end of the year.
The ICT currently has a membership of approximately 800. The ICT group will
join the IOM3 Ceramics Division, which will be renamed the Ceramics and
Building Products Division. Within this division, ICTA, the International
Clay Technology Association, will be formed to focus the interests of the
Clay Technology community.
