CV will give associates route to membership

ICE news

UP TO 2500 associate members (AMICE) lacking accredited bachelor degrees can now become members (MICE) by submitting a detailed CV to the ICE.

But associate members will have to demonstrate in their CVs a level of education equivalent to a degree to be successful.

Council approved a flow chart last week to clarify the options available for AMICE to transfer to MICE. The £50 transfer fee will be waived to help encourage AMICE to join the ICE.

ICE vice president for membership Richard Haryott said: 'As associate grade members diminish, we need to encourage more people to transfer'.

AMICE applications will be assessed by two ICE reviewers, but those still unable to demonstrate a degree-equivalent education can be reviewed separately by the mature routes panel. This will carry out a career appraisal of the candidate which could lead to full membership.

Council also approved an exemption route for corporate members of the Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES) to MICE membership Haryott said that the decision was intended to address the low uptake of ICES members becoming AMICE.
