New Members' Ceremony

As a newly-qualified member, you are invited to attend one of our New Member Ceremonies at Chartered Accountants' Hall in London. These events are free of charge.


Our New Member Ceremonies are always fantastic occasions. You’ll be congratulated by the ICAEW President at a formal presentation, followed by a drinks reception in the Great Hall. You will also have the opportunity 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
  • show off your achievement to family and friends

Take a look at our video below to hear from other new members who have attended ceremonies and see what to expect.

You can bring up to two guests, and a photographer will be on hand to capture this special occasion. Photos are available to view and buy online afterwards.

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

How to attend

New Members Ceremonies happen regularly throughout the year at Chartered Accountants' Hall in London.
