The CII has now introduced digital membership cards. Members can access their card in the membership section of their My CII dashboard – where it can be saved, shared and downloaded to a desktop or mobile device.
Digital membership cards offer a number of benefits over physical cards. They are more sustainable, being issued and easily shared with others online; more secure, with login required to download them; and more accessible, being quickly retrieved from a digital wallet on the go. They also cannot not be lost, stolen or damaged.
This new initiative, inspired by member feedback, aims to improve access to services by enabling members to download their card upon joining or renewing membership – replacing the existing four- to six-week wait for physical cards. It will also have a positive impact on the CII’s carbon footprint by putting an end to the annual production and distribution of more than 125,000 plastic cards.
The CII has invested in a robust authentication process to make digital verification by employers, clients, or customers possible, should it be required.
