If you are a retired librarian or information professional and would like to continue your personal and professional connection with CILIP and with other members, then join the Retired Members Group. The Group enables you to keep in touch with friends and colleagues old and new, enjoy a range of interesting events and to assist CILIP in its ongoing work and promotion of libraries.
The Group seeks out additional financial and other benefits available for retired and older people and makes these known. It assists CILIP with the organisation of its elections by the provision of scrutineers and the development of guidelines.
It helps the Library Campaign to maintain and improve library services. It also responds to requests from voluntary societies and charities for assistance with their library services where this complies with the CILIP Guidelines for voluntary work.
From January 2017 until December 2018, members will be able to join the Retired Members Group as a complementary Special Interest Group at no extra charge.
Join CILIP and take the next step in your career by expanding your network and knowledge. Keep your thinking fresh with our exclusive magazines and newsletters. As a member you will have the tools to develop your skills and demonstrate your value. Join as a Student, Member or Leader to start your journey towards professional registration.
