Membership Overview

Membership with the Commonwealth Association of Museums provides exclusive access to the professional development opportunities we offer. The CAM Bulletin is a bimonthly newsletter that keeps CAM members up to date with all ongoing activities and opportunities as they arise. The membership has access to the distance learning program, the internship program, the Triennial Conference, regional workshops, and to submit content to the membership blog.

Join CAM to:

  • receive the CAM Bulletin
  • 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. Everything CAM does we raise project funds to accomplish. CAM receives no core operating funding. We need your support for all of our upcoming events and programmes.
