President's Message

As we began the 101st institute year, we were six weeks into the first lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We responded quickly to the challenges of remote connection with council meetings and CPD webinars. Our Centenary Annual Dinner was postponed to September 2020, then again until the Spring of 2021 and again until Spring 2022.  Further planned Centenary face to face events were shelved and our CPD webinar programme continued until the end of the institute year and will continue until the end of 2021. Our 2020-21 CPD programme(and by pooling our resources as part of the Southern Regional CPD programme) offered 172.5 hours of online CPD over 65 events.

After it became clear that we would not be able to hold any of our planned Centenary events, I was asked to remain as President for 2021-22. I am therefore honoured and proud to remain in post  for another 12 months. 

My objectives for 2021-22 are the same as last year

To raise awareness of our institute within the community with special events and local fundraising
