Early Career Membership

User menu

For 2019/20 we have introduced a new category of membership open to students about to graduate and leave full time training as well as people new to IIC who are at an early stage in their career.

Early Career Membership gives you access to professional journals and our mentorship scheme. It also offers a chance to network with a cohort of others taking the same path post-training and advance your career by being part of a truly international community. You can choose this package for up to five years - through internships, apprenticeships and a first job, as you establish yourself.

Our membership begins each year on July 1.

To ensure membership is affordable for all you can find details here of further discounts by world region and for those who already belong to a national body for conservators. These will be applied at checkout.
