The decline in CILIP membership is shown in Figures 1 and 2.
23
As can be seen from Figure 1, the decline appears to be linear. There appears to be no signifciant cause (e.g. change of govenment, affect of cuts, changes in CILIP staffing levels or governance)

which has affected the rate of decline in membership.

Figure 2 shows the trends in membership numbers with the 0 axis included.
