Membership is an opportunity to broaden your horizons, share with colleagues from across the world, develop your professional career, and be part of an ongoing conversation, in person and online.

IIC membership is open to those with a professional interest in conserving the world's heritage: from conservators and restorers, to conservation scientists, architects, educators and students. We also welcome collection managers, curators, art historians and other cultural heritage professionals.


Our Fellows are established members of the conservation profession, elected by our existing body of Fellows.


Join as a student if you are enrolled in a full-time programme of education, training or work experience, supervised by a professional conservator.

Individual membership is open to everyone with a professional interest in conservation. We also offer membership priced for those who have retired.
