Memberships 2019

During 2018 UMG commissioned a consultation exercise to better understand the current needs of the UK University museum sector, and in 2019 will be undertaking a review and update the UMG’s governance and constitution.

Whilst this work is ongoing, and for 2019, UMG will not be requesting a membership fee. Members as of 2018 will continue as members. Following the governance review, a revised membership model and fee structure will be offered for 2020.
