Fellow membership

Recognises those who have made a significant contribution to the profession

Who is Fellow membership for?

APM Fellowship recognises those who have made a significant contribution to the profession as a practitioner.

We believe it’s important to celebrate those who have not only achieved a certain level in the project profession, but who also give back, encouraging others to succeed. Becoming a Fellow of APM does just that. We give experienced professionals, who have made a significant contribution to project management, the status they deserve from the only chartered membership organisation for the project profession.

You'll need to:

  • Have been a Full member of APM for at least five years and have an additional five years’ project delivery experience
  • Or have a minimum of ten years’ project delivery experience
  • Have made a major personal, ongoing contribution to the project management profession by meeting at least one of the following criteria:
    • Recognition
    • Contribution to others in the profession
    • Shaping the profession
