The Association for Industrial Archaeology has decided to establish a Young Members Board as a sub-committee of the Association, composed of people who are in mid-career or younger. The AIA recognizes the ageing demographic of both the membership and Council, and believe that by engaging with younger people they can better deliver the aim of the Association to ‘give our industrial past a future’.
The board will be able to set its own agenda and will have executive powers to deliver it, subject to prior approval of policies, plans and budgets by Council.

The Board will provide an exciting new opportunity for early career researchers and professionals to work with like-minded people to influence the direction of the Association and Industrial Archaeology generally. It also provides an opportunity for such individuals to raise their own profile, develop their personal skills and knowledge, and build their CV whilst networking with interesting and knowledgeable people in the subject area, taking on real responsibility and also recieving free membership of the AIA for a year!
