Once you have passed the Diploma in Treasury Management, you have successfully completed the third step in your ACT membership journey.


When you have received confirmation of passing and you upgrade from Student membership to Associate membership, you are then eligible to use the designatory letters AMCT after your name.

Designatory letters are a mark of differentiation on your business card and in your professional title. It is these letters after your name that ultimately help you stand out. Your membership of the chartered body for treasury shows your onward commitment to your profession. It also instils confidence in employers, colleagues, and clients alike that you are maintaining the very highest professional standards.

You can use the designatory letters for as long as you remain a member of the ACT.


When you pass your qualification your Student membership will expire so you can join the ACT as an Associate member.

Associate membership enables you to take advantage of all member benefits which includes use of your designatory letters.

Remember that as part of this dynamic global community, you have access to support from the very best treasury expertise and resources:

  • Subscription to The Treasurer magazine
  • Access to the ACT Career Hub which holds a huge bank of practical resources, from advice on how to handle a performance review to a job search engine

  • Opportunity to join the Future Leaders in Treasury forum where you can help shape the profession by telling us what you think. We use the ideas, knowledge and expertise generated to provide practical, useful outcomes for younger members and grow the treasury profession.
  • Access to our CPD activity log, allowing you to set objectives for yourself and track them as you progress
