The two associations will also exchange constant information about their members and activities, and also their Boards will have regular meetings.
 
Maxim Behar, ICCO President says:
"We are all very happy to have APRA as our partner. Africa is a very fast growing market, PR business seems to be booming in some countries and ICCO is ready to partner with them. We also welcome our African friends to the next ICCO Summit in Oxford, UK at the end of September 2016, and also will also extend to them the opportunity to enter as many applications as possible for the ICCO Global PR Awards held two months later in London."
 
Peter Mutie, APRA President says: "APRA is extremely delighted about the partnership with ICCO. We believe both organisations have so much to gain from one another as demonstrated during this conference. In particular, we believe that the partnership will help grow the number and quality of PR consultants on the African continent".
