Congratulations to Saad, Ann, Matthew, Sudha, Katherine and Yingyan on getting Chartered. Your new status is an assurance to yourselves, your clients and the organisations you work for that you operate at the very highest professional and ethical standards. 

The transition to us being able to offer online assessments has been a successful one and I am delighted that more international members are choosing to take advantage of the new process to achieve Chartered status. As our industry continues the drive towards evidencing our professionalism, I hope many more members look to becoming chartered over the coming months.
