Apply to be a Master Innholder

Applications should be made by using the form below, accompanied by a CV and a recent colour photograph. One letter of support from a Master Innholder may also be attached or sent under separate cover but must be received by the closing date for applications. 


Applicants are strongly encouraged to discuss their application and suitability for membership with a current Master Innholder, and the application should be supported by a letter of endorsement from a current Master Innholder. We request that a current Master Innholder provides a letter of support for just one applicant each year.

Deadline for applications is midnight Friday 22 March 2024.

Applications will be considered by the Chairman’s Membership Panel and shortlisted applicants will be invited to an interview in London on Wednesday 24 April 2024. Please ensure you keep this date free as it will not be possible to arrange an alternative date. 

The decision of the Chairman’s panel is final, and it will not take part in any discussion or correspondence resulting from its selection.

Please email your application form, sending all details including your full name, organisation and contact telephone number to:
