On 1 March, the Institute introduced a process enabling members to more easily connect with each other, with the aim of supporting the vitality and development of the IEMA community

Members were notified of the introduction of the “sharing your details” scheme earlier in 2014. Now it is live, any current IEMA member has the opportunity to request the basic contact details of members who have opted to be included in the scheme. The purpose of the scheme is to enable members to connect, discuss and work together on IEMA-related activity. The new facility aims to enhance members’ ability to participate, network and collaborate as part of the IEMA community.

Introduction of the scheme was approved at the 2013 AGM after IEMA had taken advice from the Information Commissioner’s Office on the best way to share members’ contact details and remain compliant with the Data Protection Act. All of the Institute’s members had the opportunity to opt out of the data sharing scheme in the 30 days before its launch, and can still do so by emailing [email protected] with your name and membership number.

If you wish to request the basic contact details (name and email address) of another member, you can now get in touch via [email protected] to request them. Please note we will only be able to pass their details on if that individual has opted-in to the scheme and you intend to contact them for IEMA-related activity. Don’t forget that the IEMA LinkedIn groups and our Twitter feed are also great ways of contacting and connecting with other members.

Full details about sharing your details, including terms of use, are available from
