President's Message

I am proud and honoured to be this year’s president of the Insurance Institute of Shropshire and Mid Wales. I would like to say a big thank you to Chris Robson, for his term as president, and passing over the institute in a healthy position. I would also like to thank all the council members for their ongoing hard work in supporting the institute.

I have 3 main aims for my year and they are as follows:

• Education – I would like to continue putting on our excellent CPD events. We aim to cater for both our General Insurance and PFS members with both technical and soft skill learning events. If you have any suggestions on topics you would like covered, please let me know.
• Social – I think it is important for our members to integrate and socialise. I aim to put on various social and networking events to bring our ‘community’ together. It would be great to see you at our events.
• Charity – The insurance charities is a fantastic charity who do great work in supporting those within the industry who have fallen on hard times. I would like to us to continue to support this great cause through fundraising at events.

We will be holding our annual dinner on Friday 3rd November. We have a new venue this year in the Albright Hussey with various acts of entertainment. This promises to be an excellent night, which I hope you can join me for.

Finally, if you would like to get involved in helping the council, then please let me know. We are always looking for new members who can bring fresh ideas and suggestions to the table; your involvement would be warmly welcomed by current Council members.
