The Chartered Institute of Building’s (CIOB’s) move away from printed membership cards aims to be more convenient and sustainable
CIOB is rolling out digital membership cards for its members in a move to cut waste and innovate sustainable services.
The digital membership card is available to Chartered Members (MCIOB), Chartered Fellows (FCIOB) and Technical Members (TechCIOB). Those eligible should have received an email notification from CIOB.
Over 7,000 institute members receive a new membership card each year. This would be a printed card sent via post. By introducing a digital membership card, CIOB aims to make this service more convenient while also becoming more sustainable.
CIOB’s associate director of retention, Ruth Kennedy-Green, said: “Our new initiative will offer members digital membership cards instead of printed cards, cutting down on waste and improving our members’ experience.
“Since people are already carrying their smartphones everywhere, it makes good sense for our members to have their membership cards stored on them.”
