Get Involved

Join us! There are a number of ways in which you can become part of the MCG community.

Come to our events

We’ve been running events on museum technology for years, but our close links with practitioners and our wider community help make our conferences the best place to hear about upcoming technologies and how museums are integrating digital into everything they do.

Join over 1,500 fellow museum professionals by signing up to our active and supportive email discussion list.

If you would just like to receive occasional updates about activity such as our annual conference and other events, you can subscribe to our email newsletter.

You can also keep up with discussion topics by following @ukmcg on Twitter, liking our Facebook page or joining our LinkedIn group.

Get involved – become an individual member

Individual membership is free, and members receive discounted registration rates for our conference and other events. They also have the opportunity to steer the direction of the group through participation in our AGM. You can join when you next register for one of our events (and still benefit from the discounted rate).
