CIfA membership offer for IHBC members

Memorandum of Understanding

On 12 May, CIfA and the Institute of Historic Buildings Conservation (IHBC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which outlines the intention of both institutes to develop a more structured partnership and creates new possibilities to enhance complementary membership benefits.

The MoU recognises the shared aims of promoting good practice and a commitment to developing high quality skills and learning environments in archaeology and conservation respectively, as well as a shared interest in influencing legislation and policy affecting the historic environment and securing investment and support for areas of common interests.

The MoU also recognises that both institutes have distinct roles in shaping the historic environment, with the accredited skills-sets and competences of members, but also identifies complementary characteristics and a greater potential to work to ensure mutual support of aims, events, and services.
