The IHBC Yearbook for 2016 has been distributed to members and sector leaders, containing the regular and essential IHBC updates and listings – including on HESPR members and IHBC Recognised Courses – as well as the selection of commissioned articles around the themes of people, money and innovation connected with the forthcoming Annual School in Worcester: ‘People Power! – Catalyst for change’.
IHBC Director Sean O’Reilly said: ‘Each year our Yearbook extends the IHBC’s reach ever further beyond our own membership, as now it boasts a circulation of some 5500 copies to industry and sector leaders, regulators, to specialist and non-specialist bodies, and to individuals that might benefit from a better knowledge of the IHBC’s work. And this year we are also include in the circulation many of our new IHBC membership and other leaflets – on IHBC Jobs etc, our Marsh awards, and much more – all reminding members and colleagues just how busy we are trying to deliver better conservation in the face of one of the most invidious working environments we have faced for generations’.
‘Of course that’s why it’s so important that it also contains our usual directory features, such as our ‘HESPR’ member listing of conservation businesses that work to the IHBC’s standards, as well as those conservation courses, from across the UK, that have achieved full and select recognition by our institute.’
The articles within this issue of the yearbook include:
- Heritage and value: Henry Russell’s introduction to the theme
- The Case for Incentives – Donovan Rypkema, the internationally-recognised authority on heritage taxes in America
- Neighbourhood planning in the Baltic Triangle – Dave Chetwyn and Gerry Proctor, looking at the links between people and a very significant place
- Nudge Theory – Andrew McClelland, examining how social models might help shape conservation outcomes
- Care in the Community – Sarah McCleod, exploring the many roles of communities in conservation processes
- Empowering volunteers – Kate Kendall, IHBC’s LETS officer, on how the IHBC can help build capacity and skills in volunteers.
The wide-ranging articles provide inspiration and information on a wide range of themes, closely linked to the IHBC member competencies.
IHBC President David McDonald also notes that the articles should help those who may be considering applying for membership, for example the Finance and Economics area of competency is discussed and should help in developing confidence within this area.
