MOBIS Services from ICA

The ICA’s Relationship to its MOBIS Associates:

75% of the delivery of consulting and training services by the Institute of Cultural Affairs will be by independent contractors called ICA MOBIS Associates. Independent contractors retained by ICA have signed an agreement that clearly outlines the relationship between the contractor and ICA. All Associates are part of a professional network with training and certification requirements which they have earned as a result of extensive experience and multiple years in the facilitation profession.

ICA's MOBIS Associates average 20 years of experience. Approximately 75% have advanced degrees and are dispersed geographically around the United States and the world. Our executive and lead consultants are innovators in the use of participatory methods, strategic planning and facilitation. They bring a wealth of practical facilitation and consulting experience which comes from work with large and small businesses, not-for-profits, government and community agencies, tribal governments, educational institutions and neighborhoods. They are skilled at both adapting methods to fit a variety of situations as well as transferring these methods to work groups and organizations. The Associates provide an interdisciplinary and multicultural approach to organizational change and development. Their strengths are in collaborating with their clients to achieve meaningful goals and long-term organizational success.
