- Robin Melley TEP FPFS
I feel very proud and privileged to be taking up the baton that was first held by Richard Edwards MBE FCII, who was instrumental in founding this institute as ‘The Shrewsbury Centre of The Birmingham Insurance Institute’ on 30th September 1927, almost 100 years ago!
Firstly, I would like to thank Prof. Tony Granger for his commitment and dedication as President last year. I would also like to express my gratitude for the enthusiastic support from all council members, some of whom have served this institute for over 40 years – quite remarkable.
We may be one of the smallest local institutes out of the 55 across England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. However, we do indeed live up to the reputation of ‘punching above our weight.’ There has always been a strong focus on helping members to progress with their qualifications and professional development, social activities, and charity.
Anyone wanting to join us on this journey, you will be made very welcome at a social event, a CPD lecture or, if you would like to get involved with council, please come along to the next meeting.
Please feel free to give me a call, send me an email or connect on social media.
