You can elect to cancel your registration with the Institute during your professional career; however you can re-join the Institute at any time.
If you were an Associate member or affiliate you will need to just complete the joining process again and pay the reinstatement fee which is detailed in the subscription and fees document below.
If you attained the status of MCIAT and allowed your membership to lapse for less than three years, to reinstate your membership you will need to complete the joining process again and submit your previous CIAT registration number or proof of former membership along with the reinstatement fee which is detailed in the subscription and fees document below.
If you allowed your Chartered Membership to be inactive for more than three years, you will need to re-join as an affiliate or Associate (depending on your eligibility). In order to re-join, you need to complete the joining process here and submit your previous CIAT registration number or proof of former membership along with the £70 reinstatement fee and applicable pro-rata subscription.
The process to re-attain your Chartered Membership requires you to complete the professional practice units (15-17) of the Chartered Architectural Technologist POP Record. You must then submit the re-entry interview application form, submit an up-to-date CV and pay a £200 re-entry interview fee. Upon receipt of your re-entry interview application, a portfolio of evidence will be required to facilitate a Professional Practice Re-entry Interview with successful attendance enabling registration as a Chartered Architectural Technologist.
Upon successful attendance at your re-entry interview, you will then be required to pay the Chartered Membership upgrade fee, which is the difference between the Associate or affiliate subscription to that of the Chartered Membership subscription for that period.
