Are you a Marketing Executive or a new Marketing Manager?

Our Associate (ACIM) membership is the entry point to being a graded member as well as the first opportunity to begin your journey to becoming a Chartered Marketer. ACIMs are typically marketing executives or new marketing managers and operate at a tactical level where they influence and report to senior marketing management.

How does being an ACIM help you?

Professional recognition is as important at the start of your career as it is in your latter years. The ACIM designatory letters and digital badges help you to stand out as a credible marketer in a crowded and competitive space. Through demonstrating your desire to keep up to date with the latest marketing trends and best practices or even working towards Chartered Marketer status, being an ACIM gives you the platform to show just how valuable a marketing professional you are. Whether you’re dedicated to developing your career in an existing role or aspiring to land your next perfect job, you can be confident you will be noticed.
