Apply For Free Membership Of The Association of Chairs

Chairs or Vice Chairs on the boards of AIM member museums in Wales and England can now access support through a new AIM partnership with the Association of Chairs.

AIM has agreed to fund 30 free one-year memberships of the Association of Chairs, to give museum Chairs or Vice Chairs the chance to benefit from the support available from the AoC. Membership benefits include:

  • The chance to learn from the experience of Chairs in other parts of the voluntary sector through a growing peer network
  • The chance to attend a free briefing for new Chairs (usually £40)
  • Access to resources just for Chairs, including a free print copy of A Chair’s Compass (usually priced at £25). It focuses entirely on the Chair’s perspective and the particular challenges and opportunities of the role
  • Discounted fees for other events

The memberships will be open on a first-come, first-served basis to chairs of AIM member museums with an income of less than £5m a year.

Only one person (either the Chair or Vice Chair) will be eligible per organisation.

How to apply

To apply for one of the free memberships of the Association of Chairs, the Chair or Vice Chair of the museum should email with:

  • a note confirming the name of their museum
  • their AIM membership number if known
  • the annual income of the museum.
  • We will accept the first 30 applications received. Please note, applications must come from the Chair or Vice Chair directly.
