There are four grades of APM membership:

[edit] Local reach

APM branches host events aimed at all levels of membership. Events serve to keep members updated on the latest developments in project, programme and portfolio management, foster networking and contributing to the requirements of CPD. APM relies to some extent on the expertise and commitments of a volunteer community to deliver numerous wide-ranging activities, including events, publications and product development.

Special interest groups (SIGs) provide a forum for discussion for members and their guests and create and disseminate new knowledge.
