APM – Chartered Status – latest news

The Association for Project Management (APM) has received its Royal Charter following notification from the Privy Council Office in October that Her Majesty The Queen had approved its application. The Charter represents a significant milestone in the development of the profession and completes the final phase before the association transitions to a full Chartered body in April 2017.

The receipt of a Royal Charter marks a significant achievement in the evolution of project management and those who make, and seek to make, a career in this field. The Charter provides recognition for the profession, reward for the association that has championed its cause and opportunity for those who practice its disciplines. APM President David Waboso, Chairman John McGlynn and CEO Sara Drake were on hand to receive the Sealed Charter in December. The Chartered award is great recognition for a relatively new profession which now makes such a significant contribution to social and economic wellbeing.

Register of Chartered Project Professionals

APM is also preparing for the next important phase of creating a register of Chartered Project Professionals. “The development of the register of Chartered Project Professionals is a central pillar in our drive to raise standards of project, programme and portfolio delivery,” said APM CEO Sara Drake. “Our intention is to provide a register which offers (to clients, employers and the public) confidence of quality across the rich diversity of skills involved in project management in the quantity needed by the profession and by society across all walks of life.”
