About Association for Project Management

Association for Project Management (APM) are the chartered body for the project profession and the UK branch of the International Project Management Association.

They are committed to developing and promoting project and programme management through their five dimensions of professionalism: breadth, depth, achievement, commitment, and accountability.

Founded in 1972, the organisation serves 23,000 members and 600 corporates, including Rolls Royce and the Ministry of Defence, making it the largest professional body of its kind in Europe.

In 2017, the APM were awarded a Royal Charter as part of their strategy to raise awareness and standards in the profession. The receipt of a Royal Charter marks a significant achievement in the evolution of project management.

Their headquarters are in Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire, overseen by David Waboso, who has been President of the APM since 2015.
