Thank you to all of the ICOM UK members who already renewed their membership for 2019. The number of renewals in October and early November was unprecedented, and our online membership site was overwhelmed at times. Thank you for your patience if you experienced any delays in renewing your membership online.
The ICOM UK Membership Hub is still open for renewals and applications for 2019. You can find all of the information about membership benefits, categories and the link to renew at http://uk.icom.museum/join-us/
In addition to regular, retired, student and institutional membership, ICOM UK is offering a new category of membership for individuals and organisations in 2019 – Supporting Membership (non-voting). Supporting Membership is open to individuals and organisations providing substantial assistance to ICOM both financially and otherwise, due to an interest in museums and the international co-operation between museums. Examples of supporting members include legal professionals representing museums, media (magazine publishers), architects and designers (and companies) providing direct services to museums but not as their main activity.
The 2019 ICOM sticker is valid from 1 January 2019. If you apply in November, you should receive your 2019 sticker within 3 weeks, and in plenty of time before the start of the new membership year.
To take into account the December holidays, we kindly ask that members renew their membership in November to guarantee receipt of your 2019 sticker before January. Applications received in December will be processed as quickly as possible but we cannot guarantee you will receive your sticker before 1 January 2019.
If you have any questions about renewing your membership for 2019, please contact the ICOM UK Membership Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your continued support of ICOM and ICOM UK.
