The Collections Trust is the professional association for people working in Collections Management. Since 2012, our network has grown significantly, and we have now reached the point whereby we need to look at new ways to ensure that we can continue to serve the interests of the Collections Management community.
We are carrying out this survey to inform a Feasibility Study for a new Collections Trust Membership Scheme, which will help support our work now and for the future. Collections Trust is currently consulting on the re-introduction of our paid membership scheme and to ask whether you might be able to take a moment to let us have your comments and ideas.
As the professional association for people working in collections management in the UK and internationally, the Collections Trust has an active programme which encompasses workforce development, standards and advocacy for the value and impact of collections and collecting.
Our work is supported in England by the Arts Council England, and please be assured that none of the free resources and services that ACE has funded will be withdrawn or placed behind a paywall. The aims in considering the re-introduction of a membership scheme are to support the ongoing expansion of our work, to support delivery in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and to give us a closer connection to and relationship with the professional community we serve as a Charity.
The short survey questionnaire is now live at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CTmembership
