There are two possible routes to membership. The vast majority of members are individual members who have successfully completed our Professional Qualifications. The other route to membership is Corporate Membership.
Corporate Membership is an effective way to invest in the future of your business – in gaining the profile your organisation deserves and in supporting the people who look after your company’s finances.
Organisations with an interest in treasury, risk and corporate finance may apply for Corporate Membership and nominate up to 6 individuals to act as Corporate Representatives who then gain access to our treasury knowledge resources, advice, best practice, learning and networking opportunities.
Corporate members are typically:
- Organisations with large treasury operations
- Smaller organisations with no separate treasury operation whose financial management team would benefit from access to the ACT’s resources
- Providers as well as users of financial services and those involved in advising practitioners in the areas of treasury, risk and corporate finance
- Academic institutions educating in the areas of treasury, risk and corporate finance
- Organisations based both within and outside the UK, including the Middle East
Corporate Members are represented by individuals employed by the organisation – Corporate Representatives. We recommend one or two representatives however some organisations may wish to nominate up to a maximum of six. Corporate Representatives’ benefits include:
- Ten issues of The Treasurer magazine per year
- Discounts on ACT conferences, events and training and invitations to ‘free-to-member’ events
- A copy of The International Treasurer's Handbook each year
- Discounts on other publications
- Inclusion in and access to the ACT Directory
- Increased Technical resources including priority advice from the ACT’s Policy and Technical team
- Opportunity to participate in working groups, surveys and research – this enables you to contribute your views and help the lobbying work that the ACT undertakes
Individuals nominated as Corporate Representatives would normally be involved at a senior level in the financial management team. Where this is not relevant, other senior members of the organisation will be considered. It is unlikely that those employed directly in sales or marketing will be approved.
What is required of Corporate Members and Corporate Representatives?
- Payment of a one-off joining fee per organisation, currently £1000
- An annual subscription fee per Corporate Representative (current fees are available at www.treasurers.org/membership/join) – NOTE: the annual subscription fee will be waived for Corporate Representatives who enroll on an ACT qualification
- As a Corporate Member a commitment to support the ACT is required. Examples include the employment of ACT members or the enrolment of employees onto ACT qualification courses; attending or speaking at ACT events; joining committees or working groups and contributing to ACT publications.
- Corporate Representatives cannot use ACT designatory letters, vote in any election, propose members for service, or themselves serve, on Council nor can they vote on any resolution put before the membership in a general meeting. They may serve on committees.
- Corporate Membership does not represent any form of endorsement of the organisation’s products or services by the ACT and no such representation must be made, nor can it be used as a means to access the ACT’s membership for marketing purposes.
