Mission Statement: Promote and encourage outstanding management practice in the Higher Education sector by facilitating cross-disciplinary dialogue and the sharing of expert and professional knowledge

Joining Amhec

Eligibility for membership

Membership of AMHEC is by institutional annual subscription and is open to any staff member with managerial responsibility in a UK HEI. Our current membership includes Pro Vice-Chancellors and representatives from Academic Services, Finance, HR, Health & Safety, Student Services, Registry, Facilities, IT, Marketing and Estates.

The number of members at management level from HEIs is not limited. We find that smaller HEI’s consider AMHEC of enhanced value compared to other HE organised networks as their managers are often responsible for a number of areas and therefore benefit from sharing experiences with, and learning from, the wide range of specialists that make up the AMHEC membership. Larger institutions also derive benefit from this diverse membership and find additional value in dialogue that draws on the perspectives of the smaller HEI’s as well as their own.

Membership brings access to the following:

AMHEC Conference and Workshop
AMHEC runs an annual Conference around Easter and a Workshop in October, both of which provide the opportunity to network with other AMHEC members as well as to hear topical presentations from sector agencies, external partners and senior members of the higher education community. Please see the Events page (link..) for more information.

AMHEC Mailbase
AMHEC members benefit from access to the mailbase. This is a jiscmail forum through which members discuss and share practice on a wide-range of relevant topics. The mailbase provides an opportunity to raise concerns and queries, and also provides a two-way feedback mechanism between AMHEC Members and the Executive.
