Membership provides the tools for contractors to develop their business and demonstrate their professional excellence. It also provides a forum for members to exchange views and information in order to address issues specific to the interiors sector.

FIS is a community of businesses and people in the finishes and interiors sector. By bringing people together through shared activities, events, products and services, we create conditions for our contractor and supplier members to improve performance and win work. Our mission is to set members up for success.
FIS has a growing network and community of contractors, manufacturers and distributors
of ceilings, steel framing systems, partitions, operable walls, plastering, drylining and specialist interior fit- out and refurbishment businesses operating in every type of building.
Helping your FIS Grow in Strength
FIS represents specialists in all aspects of the interior fit-out and finishes sector. We work on behalf of the sector to develop skills, drive technical competence and support our community through advice, training, technical support and provide a voice with government and other stakeholders.
The community is growing and with every new member the FIS grows in strength, both from the perspective of resource, but also the strength of our voice and understanding of the sector. As a member, we hope you appreciate and understand membership and the benefit that businesses from our sector can derive.
The team at FIS are dedicated to growing your organisation to help add weight and build resources that we can use to fight the good fight on your behalf. You can help us today by referring businesses that you work with that you think meet the FIS criteria. A referral can be a recommendation on Linkedin, a direct email, a nudge on social media posts (“have you ever thought about FIS Membership, I think you would find it useful”) or just a passing comment that FIS is worth considering. You can push membership, across, up or down the supply chain as we have categories for suppliers, contractors and associates (service and IT suppliers, training providers and start-ups who don’t yet qualify for full membership in the main).
Basically the simple message that we would like you to pass on is:
“We are members of the FIS and they help our business on many levels, but more than this they are a force for good in the sector. I would love you to join this community and support our focus on quality, safety, productivity, skills and competency that we are driving through the FIS. The attached information gives you insight into the 7 core reasons to join and complete the form so you can talk it through by one of our professional team.”
We have created a flyer that supports this referral here.
We are grateful to every member who promotes their involvement and encourages others to get involved.
Keep us posted on anybody that you have referred by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be regularly acknowledging your support through all of our social and digital channels and have plans afoot to celebrate and reward those active ambassadors through our event programme.
Membership provides the perfect platform for suppliers to interact with and support their customer base.
NOTE ABOUT MEMBERSHIP
FIS membership is not automatic, full membership is subject to strict vetting procedures and open to contractors and suppliers involved in commercial interior fit-out and building finishes. Most members are UK-based, but companies based outside the UK may also apply. There are two categories of Associate membership:
KickStart – KickStart members are often newly incorporated companies, joining as a KickStart member allows us to support you through the vetting process over your first 12 months.
Service Provider – Service Provider members provide services specifically tailored to the construction industry and in particular the finishes and interiors sector.
