CIAT and CIOB sign renewed Memorandum of Understanding

CIAT and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) have renewed their longstanding Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

The MoU has been in place since 1997 and demonstrates the two bodies' close alliance and commitment to collaboration and shared good practice.

As well as strengthening the links between the disciplines of Architectural Technology and Construction Management, the objectives of the MoU are to provide an enhanced service to support members' professional needs through joint development, commitment and action for the betterment of the built environment and society. The MoU also provides for a reciprocal membership arrangement providing a 25% reduction on the standard rates for those aspiring to obtain dual membership*.

CIAT's Chief Executive, Tara Page said: "I am so pleased to renew the longstanding agreement between CIAT and CIOB, which underpins the strong link between our organisations and the disciplines and professions they represent. This will allow us to enhance and capitalise on our shared knowledge and expertise, to improve industry standards, promote good practice, increase opportunities and develop services to our members and affiliates."

Caroline Gumble, Chief Executive of CIOB said: "This MoU not only confirms our joint commitment to collaborate and share our knowledge, seeking to improve and strengthen the disciplines from which our members are drawn, but also to promote dual membership, with discounts offered to members of either institute if they would like to apply for professional membership of the other institute."
