With a number of benefits that go hand-in-hand with membership, it makes sense to look into joining. Once you’ve passed the required assessments in order to become either a RICS Associate Member or a RICS Chartered Member, you can look forward to benefiting from your hard work.
We’ve highlighted some of the main reasons you might want to join RICS membership.
1.) Networking opportunities
Becoming a member of RICS opens up an entire community of like-minded like-skilled professionals for you to connect with across the globe. Meet them through virtual and physical channels, events, webinars and more.
Be kept up-to-date with everything that is happening in the industry through regular updates from professional standards, ethical guidance, sector-specific advice and regulatory help.
3.) Remuneration increase
According to RICS “RICS members in the UK earn on average £16,000 more each year than non-members”. This is likely because it is claimed that members have access to all of the information and connections that non-RICS members do not, so carry more value in their membership and knowledge..
As above, the sheer access to the network, information, skills etc makes members that much more employable on these grounds. Access to over 800 courses, conferences and events mean there is no shortage or learning opportunities to enhance employability.
5.) Have your say
RICS members can have their say by participating in the regular market surveys and consultations. RICS said: “2019 will focus on subjects including the future of the surveying profession and fighting money laundering.”
