"IPRoW has helped to give me a solid foundation for my work as Senior Countryside Access Ranger, tackling maintenance and enforcement issues in the north of Hampshire. Through its training courses, annual conference and regional seminars and the good practice guide there hasn't been much I haven't been able to find out. A recent post to the forum provided me with not only the rights and wrongs of walking on a golf course but even background guidance to pass on to Course managers, saving me time and broadening my knowledge."

Joining IPROW can be as simple as providing your contact details, your job description and two referees. You can apply online - why not start now?
If you are returning to a saved application, please log in on the panel on the far right.
Types of Membership
Full membership is open to those with extensive professional experience of rights of way or access management. Applicants are likely to have at least five years full time equivalent experience in paid rights of way or countryside access management work. As part of the application procedure you will be required to submit a recent relevant piece of work, or attend an interview or produce a written paper on an approved topic (details).
Anyone employed in rights of way or countryside access management can join as an Associate. Associates have access to the same benefits as full members and are strongly encouraged to take responsibility for their professional development to increase their competency and credentials. Associates can be assisted in gaining skills required to become full members, thereby increasing their career potential.
"My membership more than paid for itself with just one phone call of expert advice."
Carmel Wilkinson, Devon
Further categories of membership are Principal and Fellow for those with more extensive experience. See Membership Categories for details.
All members are bound by the Code of Conduct.
"I've been intending to join IPROW for ages but the application form just lurked on my desk, then I found the online application on the new website and it was all done in minutes! It was so fast and efficient - much easier!"
Ben Humphreys, Powys County Council

New member fees are calculated pro rata for the remainder of the year of application.
For your convenience, on renewal of membership, payment may be made by annual, quarterly or monthly standing order, by PayPal, by cheque or by invoice.
