CIfA Area and Special Interest Groups

CIfA has many Area and Special Interest Groups that you can join. These bring together professionals with specific historic environment interests in either a particular geographic area or subject area. CIfA members can join all groups for free, non-members pay a yearly subscription of £10 below.

Membership of a CIfA group brings a number of benefits, most groups produce newsletters and run training events. The groups also represent specialist views to CIfA via representation on the Advisory Council and offer advice on issues which have a specific relevance to their subject/geographical area.
