Fellowship is the highest level of our membership. Around the world, people and ecosystems face new and challenging ecological and environmental management issues every day. Achieving FCIEEM demonstrates that you have made a significant contribution to addressing these issues through your professional practice.
Fellows are role models and ambassadors for the profession. They are highly respected by their peers, inspire their fellow professionals and often take the opportunity to ‘give back’ to their profession and the Institute in a variety of ways.
All Fellows are invited to attend the annual Fellows Forum to help guide our strategic direction and growth.
The Role of a Fellow
It is important that we have a strong Fellowship and we recognise that becoming a Fellow should bring personal reward and accolade. Fellowship demonstrates endorsement of your leadership, knowledge, skills and experience. But equally, we benefit from having highly respected people in the profession, who can inspire and enthuse others through their activities and work.
It is hoped that Fellows will want to contribute to our work through a range of rewarding activities, including offering strategic advice, participating in working groups and providing thought leadership.
Meet some of our current Fellows to find out why they became a Fellow and what it means to them. A Full list of Fellows can be found by searching the online Directory of Members.
Could you be a CIEEM Fellow?
Becoming a Fellow is a public statement that you are recognised by your peers as having made, and continuing to make, a significant contribution to addressing the ecological and environmental management challenges facing people and ecosystems around the world. It is an endorsement of your leadership, knowledge and skills.
As a Fellow, you will have the opportunity to use your expertise and experience to affect positive change in the Institute and the profession. You will also have opportunities to engage in the big debates with key stakeholders, such as business and governments.
Through Fellowship we hope that you will deepen your engagement with the Institute and fellow members, helping to shape its future direction whilst continuing to develop your own professional knowledge and experience. You will be invited to participate in the annual Fellows Forum, in specialist working groups and committees and advisory groups.
Put simply, Fellows are at the forefront of our profession. They are inspiring leaders, shapers and achievers who are highly respected and who, hopefully, want to give something back to the Institute and its members.
Does this sound like you? By all means contact some of our current Fellows for advice if you are not sure whether you qualify yet. They will be very happy to help you.
