IEMA

2010 marked the start of IEMA's second decade as the leading professional body for environmental practitioners.

The year’s various political changes and economic challenges gave our institute a great deal of scope to work alongside the government, the media, business and industry to promote the environmental profession.

Despite the economic downturn, and as a result of our policy initiatives, influencing work, research, media input and long-standing reputation, member recruitment remained very strong during 2010.

Between January and December 2010, IEMA welcomed 3,199 new members from individual applications and training courses. Joining our community of professionals are practitioners from a range of organisations that have made a concerted eff ort to enhance the role and recognition of the environmental professional.

Through training activity, take-up of the Associate Open Book Assessment and individual applications, organisations such as Airbus UK, Britvic Soft Drinks, Heineken UK, JCB, Kingston University, Marshalls, the Metropolitan Police Service, Skanska Utilities and Infrastructure, and URS Ireland now have some of the largest groups of people who have become IEMA members during 2010.

This level of recruitment, coupled with valued existing individual and corporate members who continue to renew each year, allowed IEMA to end 2010 with a total membership of 15,123. And as we begin a new year with a more powerful policy, media and publishing presence, this number is sure to rise during 2011 to make our collective voice even stronger.
