New in 2013: changes to Corporate Memberships, new discounts for members in good standing

Changes to Corporate Memberships

Corporate Memberships are available to institutions, libraries, regional scholarly societies, radio-television organisations and other corporate bodies.

The costs and benefits of Corporate Memberships have been carefully reviewed, and starting in 2013, Corporate Memberships will be more flexible and affordable than ever before.

Organisations will now be able to choose the number of individuals they would like to attach to their Corporate Membership. These ‘Corporate Related Members’ will enjoy the same benefits of full ICTM Ordinary Members, i.e., participate in the Council's activities, vote in elections, receive publications, and access premium website content. As an extra benefit, the mother organisation will receive an additional free copy of all ICTM publications.

Corporate Memberships start at EUR 240.00/year, and include 4 Corporate Related Members. For each additional Corporate Related Member, please add EUR 60.00.

The following table illustrates the benefits provided by the new ICTM Corporate Memberships:
