*Grants available up to £250 maximum per person to contribute towards conference fees, travel, the conference dinner and two nights’ accommodation.

*First come first served (limited funding available)

*Priority to independent museums, and museum mentors / museum development officers

*Not normally more than 2 per museum (in addition to a museum mentor)

*N.B. Early bird discounts on conference fees for AIM members before April 17th – we expect you to apply for these rates.

AIM National Conference is an ideal opportunity to mix with other staff and volunteers in independent museums. It is a very friendly conference, and focuses on practical issues presented by people who have done it.  Those who went in previous years found it very useful.
