The ICVT grew out of an interest in developing opportunities to share professional and artistic information on an international scale. NATS and dozens of other voice teacher associations entered into a Joint Venture Agreement to facilitate (by providing marketing services and managing funds) a world-wide gathering of voice teachers for master classes and sessions, very similar to the NATS national conferences, but international in scope. Every four years ICVT is held in one of the member countries, and since its inception the congresses have met as follows:
