All members have a voice in shaping the priorities of the College, sharing views and electing the board of Trustees. When you join as an Individual Member your investment will help us to continue to support our current activities, at home and abroad and establish amazing new projects.

Membership opens up the opportunity to engage with the College in other ways; be the first to hear about our exciting projects, access exclusive information and resources, and take advantage of a range of programmes and services at attractive members' rates.
