ICA is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit corporation founded in 1960.  It is made up of nearly 40 member cities in the Southern California area and focuses on public safety, education, infrastructure, legislative advocacy, intergovernmental relationships and other major issues that transcend the boundaries of its member cities.  ICA holds two Annual Seminars bringing together city council members, city officials and business partners for the purpose of collaboration, networking, and knowledge exchange. The Winter Seminar (held in January) addresses public safety and the Summer Seminar (held in July) focuses on contemporary issues.
