Hello everyone! I hope you are keeping safe and well in these unprecedented times.
I want to reassure you all that the Institute is here to support each member where possible and CIAT continues to work hard in doing all it can during this period.
Your Executive Board is working on how best to assist you and enable you to continue your membership and retain your professional qualification - the Board understands that all members will be impacted in different ways by Covid-19.
The support includes retaining the subscriptions at the 2019/20 rates.
The opportunity to pay by direct debits over 10 months, interest free.
The opportunity to apply for the concessionary rate.
I urge you to continue to keep an eye on updates from CIAT as well as from the Government - advice and information can be found on our website and will be in AT Weekly, where we feature a special COVID-19 area.
If you are facing uncertainty and increased anxiety as we move into the coming weeks and months, I encourage our members to contact the Architects Benevolent Society to make use of their fantastic range of services for all Architectural Technology professionals and students.
As this situation unfolds, we all continue to be challenged, but I can assure you that CIAT will do it all it can to be there for you, its members.
Please also feed your experiences through to us we are here to listen, understand to feed your difficulties back to Government via the Construction Industry Council.
My best wishes to you and yours. Take care and keep safe and well.
