How do I upgrade or change my LI membership category?


    Changing membership category

    If you think your membership category is no longer correct, or you wish to change your category, please contact the LI membership team.

    Student to Associate

    Student Members on LI accredited University courses are automatically upgraded to Associate membership when we receive confirmation of your successful completion of your course.

    Associate to Chartered

    On completion of the Pathway to Chartership exam, your membership will change from Licentiate to Chartered membership.

    Chartered to Fellow

    Please refer to Fellow membership for further information about applying for fellowship with the LI.

    Retired Membership

    Retired membership is available for existing CMLI and FLI, on retirement of your profession. As a retired member the presumption is that you are no longer working so there is no further requirement for you to undertake CPD.

    • If you were previously a Chartered/Fellow member you may no longer vote.
    • You must immediately update all relevant documents where you are referred to as CMLI/FLI or you describe yourself as a Chartered Landscape Architect, by removing these protected titles.
    • Your designation changes from CMLI/FLI to CMLI (Retired) or FLI (Retired) if you wish to use it.
