Membership

ICA’s membership program is designed to serve the preservation needs of museums, libraries, archives, and other cultural heritage institutions that hold and steward collections. In response to requests for personalized, on-site services, we have developed a range of annual benefit options from which our members may choose.

ICA’s membership program is one of a number of ways to support ICA, America’s oldest regional art conservation center, and its mission to preserve and conservation arts and cultural heritage for future generations.
