International Conference on Men's Issues
The International Conference on Men's Issues (ICMI) are a series of conferences organised by MRAs and held around the world to discuss issues facing men and boys. The inaugural conference was held in 2014, and since 2016 the conference has been held annually.
While the conferences are run by MRAs, presenters are drawn from a wide pool and have included politicians and other public figures.
To date, all ICMI conferences have been held in the United States, United Kingdom or Australia. A conference is scheduled to be held in India in 2023.
