Follow-up activities help reinforce the experiences in Aspen and cement the bonds among the participants. These help ensure that alumni provide mutual support to each other as they move through their careers and that alumni continue to receive mentoring from senior colleagues. One formal aspect of alumni follow-up is a meeting in the Washington, D.C. area, about six months after the Aspen program. This meeting is primarily designed to renew ties among the participants who have been in Aspen, to review follow up activities and career developments in the six months following the Aspen experience and to create linkages across all ICAP alumni groups and its affiliations.
To give organized support and greater permanence to these follow-up activities, ICAP alumni have established the International Career Advancement Association (ICAA). Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the ICAA organizes occasional policy forums, career workshops, social events and other activities to reinforce the mutual support group and mentoring that are part of the post-Aspen ICAP. The ICAA also helps in fund raising and providing other support for the continuation of ICAP.
