Renew your membership

Renewing your membership is quick and easy. You can renew online, or by post. Remember you only have a short time to renew your membership and it may be at risk of being lapsed if we do not hear from you.

We will contact you by email when it is time to renew. To renew online, you will need to: 

  1. register on the website (if you have not done so already) and log in 
  2. after logging in, you will then see a button reading “Renewals” in the “My profile” toolbar at the top right of the page - see screenshot example
  3. click on this “Renewals” button to renew online

You can renew online and pay by:

  • Credit or debit card
  • Direct debit
  • Cheque
  • Requesting an invoice

If your membership has lapsed within the last month and you wish to renew, please email and let us know that you would like to renew

Renew by post

Renewal reminders are sent by email around three weeks prior to the renewal due date. If you would like to renew by post simply download and complete the membership renewal form and return it to us with payment.

If you have extended your studies and wish to continue as a student member, please email the Membership Team or phone: 020 7255 0600 providing details of your course, where you are studying and when you expect your course to finish. Please note an annual student rate of £40 now applies to all student members joining or extending their membership in 2017.

Were you previously a member of CILIP?

If you have recently been advised that your membership has lapsed, please email the Membership Team or phone: 020 7255 0600 to enquire about how to reinstate your membership.

If you have not been a member for some time, please go to the Join Cilip page to rejoin

Please note that if you are not currently a member and have been awarded a level of Professional Registration, you are not able to use any post-nominals (ACLIP, MCLIP or FCLIP). Should you decide to rejoin, then you will be required to complete the revalidation process before you will have your post-nominals reinstated to you.
