The Association’s main objectives are to promote within Ireland the practice of conservation of historic and artistic material to internationally accepted standards; and to improve public awareness and understanding of the need for conservation.

IPCRA members are involved in a vast range of disciplines in all areas of conservation, preservation, museums and heritage. As a network for spreading information about conservation in Ireland we are second to none.
You don't need to be a conservator to join; beyond our 150 full members, we also have associate, student and institutional members.
