CISI Committees

Membership Committee

The CISI's Membership Committee is made up of senior figures in the financial services sector who meet regularly to support the development of the Institute's membership policies.

Key priorities:

  • To act as a 'brainstorming' group to assist in the formulation of future strategy and development
  • To help research the needs of members to ensure that the Institute provides them with 'value for money' services and benefits
  • To help formulate strategies that will recruit new members.

The Membership Committee also ratifies all applications for Members (MCSI by Experience), assesses those that are judged as borderline in terms of eligibility and assists in the assessment of the CPD records of CISI members randomly selected for auditing under the CISI CPD Scheme.

Examination Board

The CISI's Examination Board meets twice a year and its function is to advise on the direction of the Institute's qualifications strategy. Whilst the spring meeting focuses predominantly on strategy, the autumn meeting provides an opportunity to review qualification performance formally.

The Board's role is an integral part of the CISI's continued drive to maintain the relevance of its qualifications and embed transparency in its quality assurance processes.
