MICA Membership Benefits

MICA membership offers valuable benefits, whether you are just starting out on your communications career or are a seasoned pro – the list below includes just some of the ways MICA can give a boost to you, your colleagues or your company. You’ll also find exclusive content in the MICA Members’ Area, including videos of our past masterclass events.

 1:1 mentoring
Our mentoring scheme pairs MICA members with experienced industry directors. Mentees and mentors sign up to a mutually agreed series of meetings, which can combine online and face-to-face sessions. In applying for this opportunity, mentees should email info@mica.org.uk and outline what area of auto comms they are in, and which aspects of professional development they would like to explore, and receive feedback on, from their mentor.

PRCA training

MICA members receive a discount of 10% on all of PRCA’s range of highly regarded courses by quoting a discount code.

Details can be found in the PRCA courses library here: https://www.prca.org.uk/training 

Your code will be sent to you with your MICA membership.
