US/ICOMOS guides and promotes activities through an extensive membership network of preservation professionals, institutions, and organizations, including specialized scientific committees. Membership in US/ICOMOS is open to all individuals who care about preserving our world's cultural heritage. Individuals and institutions may join at different levels to receive different benefits. US/ICOMOS is a private, non-profit, non-governmental organization with 501(c)(3) status. Therefore all dues and donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by U.S. law.
All memberships include:
- Reduced registration fees to US/ICOMOS conferences and workshops
- Access to email listserves and online forums
- Participation in the US/ICOMOS Specialized Committees
International - $175 per year (individual)
International members receive the ICOMOS Membership Card - good for free or discounted entry to heritage sites and museums around the world, the ICOMOS International Newsletter, and all standard US/ICOMOS member benefits. A portion of your international dues are sent annually to the ICOMOS Secretariat in Paris to support their efforts. The ICOMOS Card is based on the calendar year and is sent to international members in January. Therefore, US/ICOMOS must receive your international dues by the end of November each year in order to include your name in the roster we send to the ICOMOS Secretariat.
International members also may elect to apply for Expert Member status or observer status on any of the ICOMOS International Scientific Committees. If interested, once you join US/ICOMOS as an International member, contact the respective ICOMOS ISCs directly to apply for expert member status. You can find the list of ISCs and more information at http://www.icomos.org/en/network/international-scientific-committees
