Our memcom membership community


The memcom membership community conference and awards event brings together senior leaders from the spectrum of the professional body and association sector (collectively representing over 6 million UK professionals) and wider not-for-profit sector. Taking place in June 2019, memcom will be celebrating its 20th birthday.

The delegate audience of 500+ delegates comprises those who are responsible for determining and implementing strategic direction for a range of professions. These include the worlds of finance, law, health, medicine, housing, construction, engineering and their subsequent influence on policies for public benefit.

With over 40 high-profile speakers at the conference, memcom leads the debate around current issues affecting professional associations and the membership economy which they represent. With the current economic uncertainty and the prospect of Brexit looming, memcom stimulates a lively debate as well as providing real thought leadership as to how the professions are responding to these challenges and how a post-Brexit future might look.

memcom CONFERENCE. NEW FOR 2019!


As we celebrate our 20th birthday, we have some exciting plans for the 2019 conference. As a direct result of 2018 delegate and sponsor feedback – which suggested that so much is going on within the professional membership and association sector, as well as the UK economy generally - we’ll be extending the conference to a full day’s event. With a series of plenary talks, breakout sessions and round tables, we’ll be learning, sharing and debating the key issues of the day.

  • "The annual memcom conference and awards is unique. It attracts the brightest and the best so it's a great opportunity for the Financial Services Compensation Scheme to raise our profile; make connections with professional bodies and learn from best practice. We're proud to be associated with an event that celebrates the amazing contribution of membership organisations and the wider non-profit sector."
