APM takes significant step towards Chartered status

Save for later


Posted by Finlay on 19th Oct 2016

The Association for Project Management has taken a significant step towards achieving Chartered status.

The Privy Council considered the application at its meeting on 12 October 2016 and has now issued an Order of Grant. This has triggered a process which will see the association awarded a Charter, which will be printed on vellum and sealed.

Once the Charter has been sealed APM will implement the procedural, legal and accounting transition to re-constitute itself as a Chartered body during 2017.

At the association’s AGM on 21 November 2016, members will consider a resolution to transfer the assets and liabilities of the existing charity to a new Chartered Body Corporate.

Once constituted the new body will conduct a consultation on the criteria for admission to its planned register of Chartered project professionals.

APM has maintained a commitment to achieving Chartered status to raise standards of project delivery, enhance the status of the profession to improve our economy and society, and facilitate collaboration and research to develop the practice and theory of delivering beneficial change.
