Alteration to 2015-16 membership fees
To support the delivery of existing and new services in 2015-16, some of IEMA's annual membership subscriptions will increase from June.
With baseline costs rising year on year, it is necessary to apply increases to some joining and renewal fees in order to ensure that IEMA continues to deliver key membership features, such as the environmentalist, as well as invest in new and improved products and services.
Members who have Graduate, Affiliate, Associate, Full and Fellow membership renewals due on or after 1 June 2015 will therefore see a rise to their annual fee. Joining costs for these levels will also increase in line with the renewal fees. Renewal fees for membership of the Global Association of Sustainability Officers and Chartered environmentalist status will remain at the 2014 rate, as will all Specialist Register applications and renewals.
Members subject to the increase – those renewals due on or soon after 1 June – will receive full details of their 2015-16 subscription fees four weeks in advance of their renewal date.
A breakdown of the new rates, including details of by how much each level is set to increase, will be published in the March issue of the environmentalist. A list of FAQs to help you find out what you can expect to pay if you have more than one subscription – for example, the renewal cost for a Full member, who is also a Chartered environmentalist and a PEA assessor – will also be available at iema.net from the end of March.
