MembershipAll members (with the exception of Honorary members) must be Associates or Fellows of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators.
Benefits of Membership
By becoming a member of the Worshipful Company of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators, you will find yourself amongst a body of people all similarly qualified and motivated, who support the ethos and the good works of traditional City life. You will be able to meet fellow Liverymen from other Livery Companies, as well as others holding senior positions in, or associated with, the City. In addition, as a Liveryman you will be in an unrivalled position to offer corporate hospitality unavailable to most business people.
Becoming a Liveryman offers a unique opportunity to participate in City life, both modern day business and the traditions going back many centuries. Modernity and tradition rest easily together in the City and the Livery. Their common goals and objectives embrace strong, active links in the support of excellence and the promotion of the City world-wide.
The election of the Sheriffs and the submission to the Court of Aldermen for final choice of two candidates for the office of Lord Mayor are traditions which remain the prerogative of Liverymen to this day.
Finding out more
About five times a year, informal meetings are held in the City for potential members. At these there is a short presentation followed by an open question session. Potential members are invited to meet members of the Court and other Liverymen whilst having a drink after work. There is no obligation at all to join the Company. Attendance is open to any member of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators. There is no charge for attending the sessions. Anyone wishing to find out more or to receive an invitation to one of these briefing sessions should contact the Chairman of the Membership Committee email@example.com
