Membership FAQ Section - Please Read


I was a member in the past and would like to reapply again – do I complete the online application?
No, do not complete the online application – please email a member of staff will check your information. We will then come back to you as to what to do next.

Applying online only gives me Affiliate Membership, I feel I should be a Full Member (MILT) or Chartered Member (CMILT), how do I do this?
As of July 2018 we have streamlined the online application process.
Individuals apply online to join the Institute first.
When accepted by the Membership Committee you will be sent a confirmation email welcoming you to the Institute.
In this email it will state you have the opportunity to upgrade your membership (subject to work experience and education) in the same year or in the next calendar year.

If you choose to do this in the Same Year you will have to pay the difference in price from Affiliate Grade to either MILT and CMILT:
For example:
€50 (Affiliate) + €55 (Difference) = €105 (Full amount for MILT Membership)
Or
€50 (Affiliate) + €85 (Difference) = €135 (Full amount for CMILT Membership)

If you choose to do this in the Next Calendar Year please contact the office (01 676 3188 or email) in October / November time to have your application examined. We may need some extra information from you in regard to work or education experience. As the Membership Committee need to approve your request this may take some time and slow the process.


What if I decide to stay at Affiliate Membership Grade indefinitely?
Yes, this is fine to do.
The price of Affiliate Membership for subsequent years is €75 per annum.
Please note that there are NO Post Nominal Letters with this grade.
You will still receive the Ezine and Invites to certain events.
However, you cannot vote in Institute Elections, attend certain events or have the quarterly Linkline delivered by post to you.

 

I am currently MILT and would like to be considered for Chartered (CMILT) status - how do I go about this?
Please get in touch with the office staff on 01 676 3188 or the email address below. We may require additional information from you regarding the reasons for upgrading your membership. These maybe a change in roles within your career, further education or a combination of the two.


I don’t get the weekly Ezine Emails – why is this?
This could be for a variety of reasons:

-        The ezine is being sent to your junk mail – you will need to ‘Mark it as Safe’ so it appears in your inbox and not as junk / spam.

-        You have changed jobs – many individuals use a work email to receive the Ezine and move on to other employment. It is your responsibility to keep CILT updated, please email us to change address.

-        You may have opted out of the Ezine some time ago, if you wise to receive it again please email us stating you would like to go back on the Ezine list.

-        It may be blocked by your work email – please contact your IT section to ask them.

If you have any queries relating to the Ezine please email info@cilt.ie and we will contact you.
