Help IEMA to become more efficient

28th August 2015


Since the new online payment portal was activated on 3 August, members switching to direct debit payment have helped the institute to make 2kg of CO2 efficiencies.

The online portal makes renewing your membership quicker, easier and more convenient than ever. A key new feature is the facility to activate payment by direct debit with one simple, clear online form. Previously, opting for payment by direct debit involved downloading a form and submitting this back to IEMA for processing.

Members said they wanted the service to be improved and the new online portal supports this. Paying by direct debit also helps IEMA to make efficiencies on paper use and administration time. Each direct debit renewal saves one piece of paper, an envelope and three minutes of administration. If the entire IEMA membership renewed this way, the institute would save the equivalent of one whole tree each year, and it would help to make IEMA 33% more effective in building a sustainable future.

This shift makes a small but significant contribution towards our aim to transform the world of work to sustainability. It means IEMA “lives the values” that members expect from their professional body. It is also the most cost-effective way for members to renew – set up your direct debit and you will automatically benefit from a £5 discount on your next renewal. It doesn’t matter when your renewal date is; you can activate your direct debit today and the discount will be applied, ready for when your payment is due.

Visit iema.net/member and click renew to set up your direct debit and that will be the last action you will ever have to take to keep your membership running.

Please note that, because of the new and improved payment options, IEMA will no longer be accepting payments by cheque from 1 January 2016. If you usually pay by cheque and need to discuss your options, contact the membership team on +44 (0)1522 5400069 or email [email protected].
