President's Message

Dear Member,

Let me begin by saying what an honour it is to be asked to be your President for a second term 2018/19.

Our educational programme continues to grow as we expand and develop our PFS and CII CPD events. We want to continue to deliver as much as possible to the local institute for free, focusing on quality and accessibility.

November 2017 saw the first of our One Day Conferences, which we will be repeating this  November. We are also exploring what opportunities we have to expand in this with our neighbouring institutes.

Over the next 12 months we will continue visit large local offices to explain what the Council does and why the CII is so important to our Professional Market. I feel that by working together with business we can increase the impact and support we are able to offer.

I have been lucky enough to be joined on the Council this year by a number of Young Professionals who will look to create a sub-committee, running two events through the year aimed at our 18-35 year-olds in the local institute area. This will include our ever popular Speed Networking Event.

My nominated charity for the year is Parkinson’s UK and on top of our already busy Social Programme we will be running several events for the Charity including our twice annual quiz and a charity bike ride.

Please contact myself or one of the Council Members if you would like to discuss any of the ideas we are progressing this year. I look forward to seeing many of you at our local events or on our Social Media pages.
