APM has launched the eighth paper in its ‘Road to Chartered Series’.

Examining the strategies and initiatives of the UK’s largest and oldest chartered organisations, the paper pursues best practice from senior professional bodies as APM sets out on its own evolution to grow and develop among the ranks of a distinguished group – professional bodies endowed with a Royal Charter.

Alan Macklin comments in the foreword to the paper:

“Transition to a chartered body with an updated strategic plan is the perfect opportunity for APM to ensure that it professionalises its own capacity across a range of areas to support members in their own journey as well as developing the profession as a whole for the benefit of individuals and society. One component of our strategic plan is to drive organisational innovation. This will take time and investment, supports our chartered journey and begins with a study of those around us.
“As part of this journey – and this series – we are drawing lessons and insights from more established professional bodies. This paper provides a rich seam of innovations and observations selected from a much more comprehensive set of the learning of all our fellow chartered professional bodies. Whilst every idea may not be directly, relevant each one should give us pause for thought – both individually and collectively – as they all provide excellent signposts for our journey."

Chartered status – what next?

13 January 2017

On Friday we were delighted to finally announce the news we have been waiting many years for; that APM had received its Royal Charter. Seeing the Charter arriving at Ibis House was a personal highlight for me and the result of a lot of hard work by many people over many years.
