ICOM Committee for Conservation (ICOM-CC)
(<URL:>) connects the many and varied
conservation-restoration activities dedicated to preserving the
tangible and intangible, moveable and immovable cultural heritage of
the world.

A membership of one of ICOM-CC's 22 Working Groups
(<URL:>) is only possible
for those individuals who are full members of the International
Council of Museums (ICOM) and who have registered ICOM-CC as their
International Committee.

However, now a new membership category has been inaugurated: the
Friend of ICOM-CC and the Student Friend of ICOM-CC.

Friends of ICOM-CC can connect with this international group of
conservator-restorers, conservation scientists and curators by
joining a specialist ICOM-CC Working Group, gaining access to
electronic newsletters and notices, and taking part in Working Group
activities. They can achieve insight and understanding regarding the
multifaceted role of conservation in the world today.

Friends of ICOM-CC can share their experience and alert the
professional community to special issues in their context or region.
They will keep up to date with new research and developments.

Friends of ICOM-CC can join in the debate and activity of a
specialist Working Group, and help support public outreach and
professional education in conservation around the world.

Friends of ICOM-CC are offered reduced subscription fees for the
Triennial Meetings that bring together Working Group Members from
around the world.

Register in 2004 and get the 2005 membership for free!

A Friend of ICOM-CC membership normally runs over one calendar year.
However, taking into account the relative proximity of the ICOM-CC
14th Triennial Meeting in The Hague, The Netherlands, September 2005
<URL:>, the ICOM-CC
Directory Board has decided to provide friends full membership of
the ICOM-CC network until 31 December 2005 for those who register
now. So register now and get the 2005 membership for free! It should
be emphasised that membership of the FRIENDS OF ICOM-CC will also
entail you to the low ICOM registration fee at the upcoming
Triennial Meeting.

Registration as a Friend of ICOM-CC is possible by contacting the
ICOM-CC FUND Secretariat (secretariat [at] icom-cc__org) in Rome.
Registration will become effective after the receipt of the
registration fee.

The registration fee is:
Friend of ICOM-CC:
    EURO 40.00, respectively EURO 20.00*
Student-Friend of ICOM-CC**:
    EURO 25.00, respectively EURO 10.00*

    * The World Development Indicators Database of the World Bank
    lists countries liable for a reduced fee
    <URL:>. The lower
    fees are also applicable to ICOM members who have chosen another
    International Committee than ICOM-CC for their free membership.
    If these ICOM members would want to become an active member of
    one of ICOM-CC's Working Groups they must also register as a

    ** To be documented with college/institute (photo) ID. A Student
    Membership automatically terminates after five (5) years. After
    expiration the former Student Friend must either become an ICOM
    member or a Friend of ICOM-CC in order to preserve benefits and
    membership of the ICOM-CC network.

Subscriptions to Friends of ICOM-CC will support the ICOM-CC Fund, a
foundation working purely for charitable purposes aimed at promoting
ICOM-CC and its activities and publicising it within the
international 'conservation and restoration community' and museums
in general, as well as to the public at large throughout the world.
