As of the 1st November 2017 the Institute was merged back into one body with the Society.
Why have we changed the scheme?
The Institute of Local Council Managers (ILCM) or ‘The Institute’ was established in 2007 as an add-on to SLCC membership. Members who wished to join the Institute paid an additional annual fee and joined one of four levels of membership, (Student; Member; Fellow; Retired) dependent on their qualifications and experience.
Institute members were required to undertake ongoing training (measured by CPD points) in order to continue in membership. ‘Members’ and ‘Fellows’ of the Institute were entitled to use the letters MILCM and FILCM respectively.
At the EGM in June 2016 your Society agreed to cease being a trade union and a separate trade union (the ALCC) was formed. One of the consequences was that your Society could give greater emphasis to promoting the professional training and development of clerks which in turn meant that there was less need for a separate Institute within the Society.
The Institute has therefore agreed that it should merge back into one body with the Society.
What does the new Professional Development Scheme look like?
The new scheme ensures greater importance is given to training and development within your Society by creating two new membership levels, Principal and Fellow, which require compulsory CPD points to apply for.
