Membership Overview
Membership Overview

Membership with the Commonwealth Association of Museums provides exclusive access to the professional development and networking opportunities we offer. The membership has access to the distance learning program, the internship program, the Triennial Conference, regional workshops, and to submit content to the website blog.

Join CAM to:

  • participate in online CAM community meet-ups and Knowledge Exchanges
  • participate in the Distance Learning Programme
  • host a Canadian intern for 6 months
  • receive a discount on registration for CAM programmes
  • be eligible for travel bursaries, and
  • have a voice – and votes – at CAM and ICOM and contribute to Commonwealth deliberations.

Most importantly, your membership fees support our work. CAM receives no core operating funding and is run by a team of dedicated volunteers. We need your support for all of our upcoming events and programmes.

Memberships are priced according to the GDP of your country or the institutional budget of your organization in order to be more inclusive of institutions in developing countries and smaller institutions everywhere (World Bank, June 2019 data).

To become an Individual Voting Member of CAM, please click the button below the Group category that corresponds with your home country. You will be directed to our payment page. Your membership is active once payment is received. 

To become an Associate/Non-Voting Member (if you reside in a non-Commonwealth Country or are a retiree or student), please email commonwealthmuseums@gmail.com.

If you require an alternative method of payment or would like to be invoiced for your membership, please send us an email at commonwealthmuseums@gmail.com.

CAM’s membership year runs from July 1 to June 30, in line with the Commonwealth Secretariat reporting year.
