GEM champions excellence in heritage learning to improve the education, health and well-being of the general public.


GEM believes that involvement with our rich and diverse heritage is an enriching and transformational experience that provides distinctive opportunities for learning. We aim to make that learning accessible, relevant and enjoyable for all.


GEM membership is available to individuals and institutions.


Personal members receive one hard copy of the GEM Case Studies and the Journal, the monthly eNews by email, a discount on training day conference fees, and back copies of publications free of postage and packing charges. They are entitled to vote at general meetings. Individual membership is not transferable.


Institutional members receive two copies of all printed publications. Up to four members of staff may receive the monthly eNews and the same discounts as an individual member. Only the named representative (whose name can be easily changed) is entitled to vote at general meetings.
