12/08/2014 -- News just in. AICO, the new Olympic collectors organization that was founded in May 2014 in Lausanne, has just been elected by the International Olympic Committee as an IOC recognized organization! IOC Member (Chinese Taipei), Dr. Wu Ching-Kuo, was instrumental in personally presenting and supporting our candidature during the Executive Board meeting which preceded the 127th Session of the IOC in Monaco.
The importance of this recognition can not be understated as this fledging organization takes it's first steps in representing worldwide collectors of Olympic philately, memorabilia and numismatics. In addition to giving the new association of Olympic collector societies official standing in the Olympic world, it will also enable AICO to seek grants for special projects.
