The Chartered Institute of Building (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.
More than 7,000 CIOB members receive a new membership card each year. This would be a printed card sent via post. By introducing a digital membership card, the institute aims to make this service more convenient while also becoming more sustainable.
CIOB 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.”
