New partnership with National Army Museum announced

AIM and the National Army Museum (NAM) are delighted to announce a new partnership that will provide AIM membership to over 100 Regimental and Corps museums. 

Running from April 2022 and planned initially for three years, the partnership>> will see annual AIM membership fee costs for relevant, new and existing members generously covered by the National Army Museum.  

As AIM members, museums enjoy an extensive and growing range of services including access to exclusive grants, micro-consultancies, Trustee support, regular on and offline events, representation, and regular sector insights and updates. 

Colonel Brian Gorski MBE DL, Chair of The Fusilier Museum, and AIM Trustee said 

“As both a Chair of a military museum and an AIM Trustee, I am delighted AIM and NAM have agreed to establish a partnership which will be funded by NAM.  

AIM Membership offers all museums a fantastic network of support and resources, as well as the strong representation crucial in these challenging times as we emerge from the pandemic.  

From my personal experience as an AIM Trustee, I know how valuable the AIM offer can be and I look forward to working with both the AIM and NAM teams, military museums and all our members, to deliver on this successful partnership.”   

Justin Maciejewski, Director, National Army Museum, said   

“The National Army Museum is very excited by the opportunities available to all of the independent military museums within the Regimental and Corps Museums network through this partnership agreement with the Association of Independent Museums.   

The creativity and entrepreneurialism of the Association’s members offers a wonderful source of sharing best practice and learning for us all. The membership of more Military Museums from the fantastic network of Regimental and Corps Museums across all regions of the United Kingdom will offer further depth, breadth and new perspectives to AIM’s thriving community of museum leaders”  

Simple joining process 

AIM and NAM will be in touch with current and prospective Regimental and Corps museum members with further details, but the process couldn’t be simpler. For those ‘new to AIM members’ joining is straightforward, all they need to do is complete the Join AIM>> form adding the code (NAM2022) as a suffix to their museum name. 

Existing Regimental and Corps museum AIM members need take no action, AIM will extend their membership by the relevant duration to ensure they do not lose out following the introduction of the partnership.
