IPCRA members are involved in a vast range of disciplines in all areas of conservation, preservation, museums and heritage. As a network for spreading information about conservation in Ireland we are second to none. You don’t need to be a conservator to join; beyond our 150 full members, we also have associate, student and institutional members.
The benefits of joining IPCRA
- You will be invited to attend two annual meetings, in the spring and autumn. These are normally weekend events which provide a great opportunity to meet other conservators from different disciplines and to see conservation at work throughout Ireland (and occasionally further afield).
- You will receive two newsletters per year by post and an annual journal with conservation articles starting in 2009.
- You will have the use of the IPCRA and ICHAWI Libraries which are housed in the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks, Benburb Street, Dublin 7.
- If you are in private practice you can decide to be included on the Find a conservator list on this site which is available to the general public.
If you would like to join and keep up to date with what is happening in Ireland then simply decide which of the membership categories suits you best.
IPCRA is a voluntary organisation that relies on the hardwork and goodwill of its committee and members. We are always looking for help with organising events and outings or editing the newsletter and journal. If you are interested in getting involved then please contact the Membership Officer.
