US/ICOMOS is pleased to announce the conclusion of the 2002
International Summer Intern Exchange Program. Now in its 19th
season, more than 500 young preservationists from over 50 countries
have participated in the Program. The Summer Intern Program advances
the mission of ICOMOS by strengthening international cooperation in
heritage conservation, ensure the ongoing exchange of information,
and ushering in a new generation into the global network of ICOMOS.
This year, 4 countries participated for the first time: Bolivia,
Georgia, Panama, and the Philippines.

US/ICOMOS would like to express its appreciation to its 2002 partner
ICOMOS National Committee who contributed to the immense success of
this year's program by sending young preservation professionals to
the United States or receiving our American interns in their
country, and in many cases, both. Specifically we wish to than the
ICOMOS National Committees of Australia, Bolivia, Bulgaria, China,
Croatia, Cuba, Georgia, Hungary, India, Lithuania, Malta, Panama,
the Philippines, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Spain and the United
Kingdom. Along with the high professionalism of each intern, the
cooperation and contributions of all participating host
organizations is crucial to the success of the program and US/ICOMOS
extends its gratitude to all institutions and the individuals in them
who worked hard on this year's program.

US/ICOMOS also thanks the many donors who every year ensure the
financial stability and growth of the International Summer Intern
Exchange Program, especially the National Park Service, the US State
