Ceremony overview

Our New Member Ceremonies are always fantastic occasions and are a way for you to celebrate all your hard work. The ICAEW President will congratulate you at a formal presentation, followed by a drinks reception in the Great Hall.

You can bring up to two guests, and a photographer will be on hand to capture this special occasion.

Please note this is a formal graduation ceremony, so we are unable to accommodate children under the age of 10.

The ceremony will also give you the chance to:

  • Find out more about the services ICAEW provides
  • Meet representatives from your local member group
  • Tour our historic headquarters and modern business facilities
  • Meet fellow new members
  • Share your achievement with family and friends
