Chaired by the Museum's Head of Membership, the Membership Advisory Group (MAG) represents the interests of Members and provides a forum for discussion. The group is consultative rather than decision making and meets each year in October, February, April and July. Meetings provide a clear channel of communication back to the V&A, a consultation group when deciding terms and benefits offered to V&A Members, and a chance for the Museum to hear Members' views. To propose a topic or a question for discussion at one of the meetings contact us at email@example.com with 'MAG' in the subject field.
Every Membership supports the V&A and helps us to keep our galleries and collections free. Your support is vital, now more than ever, and will help us to continue to educate and inspire with our incredible collections for years to come.
As a charity, the generosity of our supporters is vital to enable our world-class exhibitions and care for our collections. Your support is needed more than ever at this challenging time.
While the museum is closed, please contact us by email.
