Companies, organisations and corporate bodies are entitled to join the IAM.
Joining as the IAM as a Corporate Member...
You can join the IAM as a Corporate Member via the online application process. Register as an Affiliate (free), login to the website, under the Membership menu select, Members Area, Amend grade of Membership. From there you will be able to select a corporate membership and apply.
There are useful benefits, in addition to demonstrating your commitment to the profession and supporting the development of the discipline. You are entitled to use appropriate logos on your stationery and marketing material - and you are, of course, subject to our Code of Conduct.
As a Corporate Member, individual employees within your organisation (known as Corporate Nominees) can access the benefits of Individual Membership without any special qualifications or expertise. Furthermore, your organisation also benefits through reduced rates, marketing opportunities and access to the IAM’s knowledge on Asset Management.
NB Please note that there are no due diligence implications for your organisation because your organisation is, in effect, buying services for your employees. No liabilities are assumed except by Voting Members - see our legal documents here. For more information, please Contact Us.
Corporate Nominees are named employees of a Corporate Member. Corporate Nominees are treated by the IAM as if they were Individual Members and receive all those benefits (receiving Assets magazine, discounts for events and access to Member-only pages). The Key Contact of the employing Corporate Member has access to manage this list online.
Corporate Nominees are not Voting Members of the Institute and are NOT entitled to use post-nominal letters (MIAM or FIAM). If you wish to demonstrate your personal status you need to apply for Individual Membership.

Special Discount Requirements
Organisations engaged in bona fide higher education are entitled to Bronze Membership benefits at a special price. This will normally provide sufficient access for the academic staff, whether or not they are Individual Members in their own right.
The main requirement is that there are currently students, engaged in full-time education or similar post-graduate courses, who hold Student Membership of the IAM. Such Students are entitled to significant subscription discounts and are exempt from the Joining Fee.
Academic Membership = 'Bronze' benefits at a cost of £150
Not-for-Profit, Non Governmental and Local Government Organisations
Bona fide 'not for profit organisations' (whether or not associated with Local Government, eg Housing Associations) as well as NGOs and Local Government authorities and departments are entitled to significant discount in accordance with the IAM’s obligation as a learned society to
- Advance for the public benefit the science and practice of asset management;
- Promote and recognise high standards of practice and professional competence;
- Generate widespread awareness and understanding of the discipline.
NGO / Local Government Membership = 'Silver' benefits at a cost of £250
Normally Silver Membership benefits will provide sufficient access to employees but, exceptionally, special arrangements may be discussed and agreed.
