Newsflash! Membership Restructure
Today we have announced a complete restructure of our membership criteria and the means for members to be promoted via our newly designed website .
To date there have been only two levels of membership for UK based members and probably not sufficient reason for members to want to move up to the higher level. Henceforth the criteria for promotion will be points based, with members able to earn points through continued education, experience and appropriate publicity; something our current members have welcomed.
Elizabeth Gall, Director of Simply Elegant and member of the UKAWP explains ‘Planners who are already active members of the UKAWP appreciate how this approach supports their aim to promote professionalism within the industry, and by recognising members who take their continuous professional development seriously it will help to raise standards‘.
On application wedding planners will be asked to fill in a simple form which will indicate how many points they begin with: they will then be able to reapply twice per annum for promotion to the next level based on their continued activity.
This is great for our students who, by coming on our courses, automatically start out with points should they later apply for membership.
We are introducing new member logos, which denote each member’s seniority. New wedding planners have the opportunity to begin as Associate Members, move through three levels of Member and ultimately to become a Supreme Member.
