Association for Project Management (APM) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (CICES), to encourage collaboration for the two organisations that will benefit professionals in both specialisms.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) provides a basis for joint action in areas of common interest to those in the project management and civil engineering surveying industries, as well as the general public. These include continuing professional development, education, member services, conferences and training.

In addition to encouraging ongoing constructive dialogue between the two organisation, the MOU will foster increase cooperation on matters of interest and future collaboration on areas such as policy initiatives.

The MoU was signed by APM’s Chief Executive, Professor Adam Boddison OBE, and CICES Chief Executive, Simon Hamlyn.

Adam Boddison said: “Association for Project Management is committed to creating a world in which all projects succeed. Because when projects succeed, society benefits. The best way to realise this vision is through collaboration with organisations that share similar values and aspirations. Therefore, I am delighted that the APM is partnering with Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors. Our partnership will bring together the best of both associations to support project professionals working in geospatial engineering and commercial management in infrastructure.”

Simon Hamlyn added: “By signing this new MoU with the Association for Project Management we are stablishing a formal relationship between both our organisations which will provide a platform for future collaboration on a range of mutually beneficial opportunities, including professional development, policy initiatives and joint events, in the UK and overseas.”



The Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors is an international qualifying body dedicated to the regulation, education and training of surveyors working within civil engineering. It supports the education and professional development of the specialist work that surveyors contribute to civil engineering projects. This varies from the monitoring and setting out of the works to the management of contracts and disputes.

    As a Civil engineer, I held CICES membership for more than 10 years. I also joined APM at about the same time. I decided to reduce my membership outgoings and kept my APM membership and now I have been an MAPM for almost 25 years. I am so please that APM and CICES are coming together. Congratulations on the Memorandum of Understanding APM, so pleased that we can make a bigger impact together. Ashok
