How to renew

Your Application

There are two options when applying for Full Membership;

Full Membership or Full Membership with Chartered Environmentalist

  • If you are working in a role which is largely focused on Environmental Management or similar, the dual accreditation of Full Membership and Chartered Environmentalist (MIEMA CEnv) may be the best route for you.
  • If you work in a social or economic oriented role, you could explore your option of gaining CEnv status to decide whether it’s right for you (the assessment process is the same for either option). If you feel it’s an accreditation you don’t need then you are free to go ahead and apply for Full membership on its own.

*To be eligible for Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv), you must be an Existing Full or Fellow IEMA member. Additional fees are applicable when apply for MIEMA CEnv.
