IHBC Trustees write:

… We have… continued our leading role in addressing built and historic environment conservation practice needs and issues across the UK: our branches continue to deliver a unique body of local training and networking on the ground; our ‘IHBC Jobs etc.‘ data roundup for the 2016-17 financial year recorded job opportunities linked to a minimum of some c£4.7 million of total annual costed salaries, which although substantially down on the previous period, still marked out this service both as a core sector resource as well as an income generator for us; our annual local government survey for England continued; our publications and our networks (digital and membership) all expanded; our consultations panel has maintained its high standard of public service, engaging in such critical areas as curtilage, while our support for early career members has been enhanced with a new one-year-free offer for students on IHBC recognised courses, and members that face an immediate ‘crisis’ can avail of a light touch one-year-free membership offer so as to make sure our administrative processes don’t make their crisis any worse.
