Subscription BAND 1
Band 1 is the most affordable Full Membership level. In addition to the services indicated below, you will be kept up-to-date with our activities and have secure access to your own part of the Members' Area where your own conservation files will be held as well as our growing library of free standards and resources. You will also be eligible to join our Collaborative Storage Scheme, operated with our partners Restore Plc, to participate in our Free Environmental Monitoring Scheme supported by our sponsor Deepstore Ltd, for discounts on rental of monitoring equipment and on conservation project rates for work undertaken by our team of conservators, including digitisation. Under this Band you can choose between 2, 3 or 4 days per annum of site visits by your Conservator, or equivalent in half days by agreement.
In addition, the following are the kinds of support members receive under Band 1, or you can mix and match with others listed under Bands 2 and 3:
|i.||any of the following within the annual time available under the membership level chosen:
|ii.||One free conservation condition assessment report for a significant item including photography/microscopy as necessary and specification for works;|
|iii.||Up to 10 hours p.a. telephone and email support for preservation advice, mediation with third parties (such as engineers, other conservators etc).|
Alternatively, at the same Band 1 price option you can choose defined conservation treatment or digitisation works to the same level of cost including all relevant reports. The non-profit membership company retains 10% of all subscriptions to pay for auditing, financial administration, membership secretary support and the members' area. If additional services or purchases are selected for expenditure of unused membership days, the sum we can use on your behalf is £225 per day equivalent at Band 1.
