In order to join UMAC as a member, there are two possibilities.

1) You are not a member of ICOM

ICOM has two types of committees: National Committees  (per country and territory) and International Committees (per speciality). You enter ICOM through your National Committee (e.g. ICOM China, ICOM Colombia) and then choose your main International Committee, which would be UMAC.

A) Download the membership application form  here (the form can also be obtained directly from the National Committee).

B) Complete the form, indicating that you want to be a voting member of UMAC and send it to your National Committee for approval. See their contacts  here.

C) If your country or territory does not have a National Committee, send your form directly to the ICOM Secretariat Membership service via

Note that the Membership Service will not process any application without the approval of the corresponding National Committee.

2) You are a member of ICOM but your main International Committee is not UMAC

Send the following message to the ICOM Membership service via

”I am a member of ICOM and wish to become a voting member of UMAC. Please register me with UMAC / change my voting choice to UMAC.”

Strike out as appropriate, and add your name and ICOM number. Do not forget to copy the UMAC Secretary


If you are interested in joining, contact us so that we make sure we include you in our communications right away. It is not necessary to be a member of UMAC to subscribe to our mailing list UMAC-ML.
