Nominating special members — Fellow, Life Member, and Honourable Member


The New Zealand Institute of Quantity Surveyors can recognise a person’s contribution to the profession by making them a Fellow, Life Member, or Honourable Member of the Institute.

Fellow — FNZIQS for ‘exceptional standing and experience’

The Council can make a member a Fellow if that member is ‘of exceptional standing and experience’, and has been in practice, employed, or in business in a senior role for at least 10 years before. They then can be nominated to become a Fellow.

In addition each nominee for Fellow must:

  • have been a Member (MNZIQS) or Associate member of NZIQS, or have held equivalent status in another institute as approved by Council, for at least ten years and
  • have had at least two years quantity surveying work in New Zealand

or

  • is a Fellow, or senior member of equivalent status in another institute as approved by Council and
  • have had at least two years quantity surveying work in New Zealand

or

  • has such standing and experience as Council may in any special case determine

At least three other qualified (Life Member, Fellow, full Member or Associate) members must nominate the member. Those other members must complete and sign an Application form to nominate a Fellow.

The nomination must be supported by a comprehensive written submission to Council (addressed to the Executive Director NZIQS). Once the Council has reviewed the nomination, it will approve or decline the nomination.

Any member who is accepted as a Fellow will receive written confirmation that their membership status has changed, along with presentation of the award.

As a Fellow member, you can also apply to become a Registered Quantity Surveyor

The nomination must be supported by a comprehensive written submission to Council (addressed to the Executive Director NZIQS). Once the Council has reviewed the nomination, it will approve or decline the nomination.
