President's Message

Welcome to The Insurance Institute of Leeds 

It is a genuine honour to have been elected as President for the 2018/19 term. I am very much looking forward to serving such a fantastic local institute.

Over the next 12 months my fellow Council members and I will be working hard to ensure that we continue to deliver an exceptional CPD programme and provide a variety of social and networking opportunities.

Another key aim and focus over the next year is engage with our young members and encourage their learning and professional development through greater interaction with the Institute and the CII. A young members committee will be established to help achieve this.

My chosen charity is Leeds Mind, an independently run local mental health charity. All funds raised are used to help improve people’s lives in the Leeds community. I hope that as an Institute we can help support this charity via fundraising and raising awareness of the great work that Leeds Mind do.

We have some really exciting events planned over the next year so please keep checking this website for further details and if you don’t receive our emails please log in to the main CII website and update your preferences to include Local Institute communications.

I am looking forward to meeting as many members as I can over the year ahead and if you have any questions, suggestions or if you would like to join Council please do get in touch with me.

Best wishes

James Ramirez Dip CII
