Membership of the IHBC’s Linkedin group, the primary social networking platform for IHBC members, colleagues and other conservation interests, has passed 3000.
Dave Chetwyn, IHBC past chair and lead Linkedin Group Manager, said: ‘The membership of the IHBC Linkedin Group continues to grow, with new members from all around the globe. There continues to be a diverse range of discussions, providing a platform for people to share knowledge and experience’.
IHBC Director Sean O’Reilly said: ‘The strength behind the IHBC’s Linkedin Group is that we welcome news, views and issues from anyone with a genuine interest in the conservation of historic places. It’s open to everyone, members and non-members, and easy to join too. Simply click the links, but do please note that we control access to minimize the inconvenience of ‘spamming’ for Group members. But all you have to do is: ask!’
‘As well as hosting discussions, we also highlight jobs, events and news items of interest to Group members. Non-members can catch up on current news and issues direct from the IHBC this way, of course, but with our competitive membership rates, great member benefits and support for low-waged and bursaries, you’re missing a trick if you are interested in heritage and don’t actually just join up’.
‘And now we have our on-line application system, it could not be easier to try out what we have to offer!’
