The Society for the Environment was launched in October 2002, the IEMA is one of the ten founding bodies. The Society's next major milestone is the submission of a petition to the Privy Council for incorporation by Royal Charter and a new qualification, Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv). Preliminary discussions have already taken place with the Privy Council and the Society is aiming to complete the application process by the end of 2003. For an explanation of the Society's plans go to <a href="/assets/download/docs/socenv.pdf">socenv.pdf</a><br>. Use the polling facility on IEMAdotnet's home page to tell us whether you would be interested in becoming a CEnv.
