Membership levels, why do they matter?

L&DI membership levels reflect your level of capability, knowledge and impact in the workplace. Your member grade shows colleagues, clients and potential employers what you can offer as a people professional, so make sure your grade matches up with your abilities.

You can put the letters behind your name - post-nominals - as a sign of professional recognition.

There’s a membership level to suit everyone working in the people profession, from a student member building their skills for the future, to a Fellow, putting their years of experience into practice.
