Your subscription renewal forms for 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018 will be sent in the post at the end of February!

Your subscription fee will be due by 1 April 2017.

If there are no changes to be made to your subscription category or member details and you pay by direct debit you do not need to contact us and your existing subscription will remain in place. If you wish to change your payment method or apply for a concessionary rate (accredited members only) please send back the renewal form and/or concessionary request form by 1 April 2017.

Please note that members who pay a concessionary rate need to re-apply each subscription year.

If you are planning to upgrade your membership you will still need to pay your current membership subscription fee and then we will request the additional amount due once you have upgraded.

If you have not received your renewal by the end of February, please email subscriptions [at] or telephone 0118 3786446 and we can send you another.

CIfA 2017/18 subscription bands (to be confirmed)

Subscription bands are based on your grade of membership. This structure allows accredited members (PCIfA, ACIfA and MCIfA) on lower incomes to apply for a reduced subscription rate and to ensure a fair subscription for those who earn less than the recommended minimum salary for their grade of membership.

Online payment (for current members only)

This is not applicable for members applying for a concessionary rate - please download the concessionary request form below and return it with your renewal form by 1 April 2017.

CIfA members are able to receive the Journal The Historic Environment: Policy & Practice at a discounted rate as part of their membership. From 1 April 2016 the number of issues per year increased to four, and the annual subscription increased from £24 to £34 to reflect the extra issue (a discount of 51% off the usual subscription price of £70.00). Maney also transferred to Taylor & Francis and you are now required to pay for all journals at the beginning of the subscription year.

Taylor & Francis also include access online to all published content from Volume 1, see here.

If you would like to subscribe to the journal, please add the Journal subscription option to your cart. This includes an additional £1.30 to cover our PayPal fees.

PayPal links for the 2017/18 subscription fees will be added here soon!

Concessionary rates (prices to be amended)

If you are an accredited member (PCIfA, ACIfA and MCIfA) and your income is below the recommended minima salary for your grade of membership you can apply for a concessionary rate. For example, you may be an Associate (ACIfA) member of the Institute and expected to pay an annual fee of £168. But if you are employed in a post that has PCIfA-level responsibility and pay, you would then be able to apply for a reduction in your subscription fee to the rate paid by a PCIfA member (£122). If you are earning less than the PCIfA recommended minimum salary then you can apply for a further reduction to the PCIfA concessionary rate of £76. If you work part-time you would also be eligible for a concessionary rate if your income does not meet the relevant recommended scale - as outlined above you would need to provide details of your income. The subscription rate for those who are not currently in employment or earn less than £10,000 will be £25.
