IIWC is open to ICOMOS members of various professional backgrounds who have experience, knowledge, or particular interest in the preservation of wood in historic buildings or structures. There are two categories of individual membership: Expert members (with a speciality in the field of wood conservation) and Associate members (who wish to gain knowledge and build up an expertise in a given field through active volunteer work).

To become a Member, you are required to provide to the Secretary and President:

  • a completed IWC Application Form (see below) in English, French or Spanish;
  • A CV.

Non-ICOMOS members, who want to make a contribution to IIWC, may be invited to participate in committee meetings and activities. They should send their contact information to the IIWC Secretariat or to any of the Managing Group members.
