CIOB extends financial support offer for members
CIOB has confirmed that the “Covid-19 support fund”, set up specifically for members facing financial difficulties as a result of the pandemic, will be available to those who may need a concession on 2022 subscriptions.
The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) is going digital for all 2022 subscription notices. The forthcoming renewals season will see all members who have provided an email address to CIOB receive their notices via email as part of CIOB’s ongoing moves to reduce their carbon footprint and energy use. Last year’s subscriptions were sent with an opt-in for digital subscriptions, which was received well by members, and this step builds on that.
Any member wanting to check the email address held by CIOB – or even update it – can do so via the online Members’ Portal. The few members who have not supplied CIOB with an email address are being contacted this month to ask if they’d like to provide an email address, which will then also enable them to connect with CIOB through the Members’ Portal and connect with other members via the new app, CIOB Connect.
CIOB has also confirmed that the “Covid-19 support fund”, set up in 2020 specifically for members facing financial difficulties as a result of the pandemic, will be available to those who may need a concession on 2022 subscriptions. The support is available to those who were furloughed, are on reduced pay or facing redundancy and hold one of the following grades of CIOB membership:
• MCIOB (Member of the Chartered Institute of Building)
• FCIOB (Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Building)
• ACIOB (Associate Member)
• ICIOB (Incorporated Member)
• Applicant members
CIOB is also freezing subscription fees for the second year in a row – the Institute has confirmed there will be no increase in fees for individual chartered members (those holding MCIOB or FCIOB post-nominals) or company members for 2022.
The first subscription notices for 2022 will be sent at the start of November.
