Welcome to the Lincoln Insurance Institute. The Lincoln Insurance Institute is the home of the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) and the Personal Finance Society (PFS) in Lincoln.
It is my great pleasure to serve the local profession in the capacity of President of the Lincoln Insurance Institute this year.
I'd like to thank Iain Atkinson for his presidency over the past year. During his second term Iain saw the institute - and the industry as a whole - return to face-to-face events and in particular the Lincoln Institute was the first of the 56 local institutes to hold its annual dinner in person since the beginning of COVID restrictions in March 2020. The dinner was very well attended and received great feedback from the attendees.
On the CPD front, most of our virtual webinars were hugely popular during COVID restrictions but of course there are positives to holding events in person. Therefore we will look to adopt a hybrid model offering a mixture of both face-to-face and virtual events.
This year we have a number of council members taking up new roles which signifies an exciting time for our local institute during a time of change.
Finally, to all members, I hope this next year finds you well and that your local institute can help in someway to you progressing in your career. I thoroughly recommend attending as many events as you can throughout the year and I look forward to seeing you there and hopefully at our annual dinner in the Autumn.
