Lagos is home to the organization’s main offices. Over 50,000 people have joined ICAN by the year 2020. In order to better serve its members, the ICAN started offering IT courses in August 2004.

The 46th President of ICAN, Major General Sebastian Achulike Owuama (retired), assumed office in May 2011.
