The fastest and easiest method is to complete and submit an online application. The process is split into five easy steps and should take less than 10 minutes to complete. Alternatively you can apply in writing by downloading an application form and posting it back to us.
On applying, it is important that you demonstrate enough experience and qualifications for us to find the right level of membership for you.
At IPM we know our members come from all corners of the place management industry. We therefore offer four different grades of membership (Friend Plus, Associate, Member, and Fellow) depending on your particular skills, knowledge and experience. With the help of our world-renowned training scheme, there are many opportunities to upgrade to another level of membership as your place management experience develops.
IPM Student Member (£50) status is available to Undergradate and Postgraduate students who intend to pursue a career in the field of place management, or are studying within a discipline whereby an understanding of place is a core element. This might include Geography, Planning, Architecture, Retailing, Sociology, Urban Design or Economics. Student membership includes almost full access to the whole of the IPM including most of its online resources.
Partner membership is only open to organisations or partnerships. Your status as an IPM Partner communicates your collective support of place management to a wide range of people; like-minded associations, clients, potential funding bodies, professional colleagues and other stakeholders.
We appreciate that many of you may wish to support IPM without formally becoming a members, therefore please feel free to join us a Friend. This entitles you to our monthly newsletter and occasional updates.
