Professional membership

Professional membership is the standard category for individuals whose profession or main source of income is heritage interpretation. They work – either employed or freelancing – as guides or trainers, designers, copywriters or planners, or in the managment of facilities related to natural or cultural heritage.

Professional members benefit from:

  • Networking opportunities with other professionals in more than 40 different countries
  • Information through IE newsmails, newsletters and conference proceedings
  • Significantly reduced fees for IE conferences and other events
  • The right to register for IE training courses
  • The right to vote at the IE General Assembly or whenever a ballot is held

The annual fee for professional members is €60. Professionals who cannot afford this are welcome to join as individual members.

Whenever possible, please use a SEPA direct debit mandate to pay your membership fee.
