There are three ways to become a DEMHIST member:

1) You are not an ICOM member

ICOM has two types of committees: National Committees (by country) and International Committees (by speciality). You enter ICOM through your National Committee (e.g. ICOM Portugal, ICOM US) and then choose your main International Committee, which would be DEMHIST.
