AHI Membership

Become part of a diverse network of interpreters involved with interpretation of the natural and cultural heritage in the UK and abroad. We encourage active members. Join us and meet people at our popular training events, workshops and annual conference.

AHI aims to make a difference - promoting high standards in the provision of interpretation and gaining wider recognition of interpretation as a professional activity. We have developed a range of core competencies that will soon inform our full membership process. Join now and help to achieve these goals - as well as being part of a supportive, vibrant community!
