2017/18 Membership Fees

Each year, the IES Council reviews the Institution's membership fees to ensure we continue to provide a first-rate level of service to our members, and have the resources to further expand our membership offering. The Institution is sensitive to its members’ needs, and the current economic uncertainty in the UK, so has made every attempt to keep subscriptions as low as possible. Therefore, this year's IES membership fees will be restricted to an inflationary rise. We are also pleased to keep IAQM and Affiliate memberships the same level as the last three years. We will continue to offer free student membership to individuals studying on our accredited programmes, and discounts for members who are retired, out of work, on low-income and on parental leave.

Our Chartership subscription costs reflect the fees that we pay to registration bodies. We aim to ensure that the income we receive from our Chartership subscriptions cover our membership, licensing and individual annual registration fees. Unfortunately, the Science Council have recently imposed a large increase in their license fee and individual registration fee. This means our annual Chartered Scientist (CSci) subscription will now be raised to £68. The registration fee charged by the Society of the Environment has risen by a small amount, however, because our number of CEnvs is increasing, we are pleased to reduce our CEnv subscription fees by £3 this year.
