Why join CIEH?

How will CIEH membership benefit you? We asked our current members for their top five reasons:

#1 Boost your career
Open up a huge range of opportunities to gain new professional skills and knowledge. With most of our membership grade, you also get to use designatory letters (such as MCIEH) after your name – an instant badge of competence and integrity for clients, colleagues and future employers.

#2 Make the right contacts
Get access to a powerful and supportive network of fellow environmental health experts. Through our Regional Hubs, you can connect with like-minded professionals at events near you. With our sector-specific Communities, you can make valuable connections across five specialist areas: Environmental Protection, Health and Safety, Housing, Food & Safety and Public Health.

#3 Have your say
Make your voice count. We work for our members on the issues that matter most in our industry. That means you can help shape our policy and campaigns, and make sure we’re addressing the things you care about. Together, we can help set the national agenda for environmental health.

#4 Find practical support
Solve day-to-day work issues through accessible, informative and reliable information and advice. With your free subscription to Environmental Health News magazine, best practice guides, briefings and case studies - membership will unlock a host of practical tools to support your work.

#5 Save money
Membership can save you up to £100 on CIEH conferences and training courses. Members are also eligible for a professional indemnity insurance scheme and a free legal helpline.
