Regional Co-ordinators

We have in place a very popular and effective system of Regional Co-ordinators. They arrange regular meetings in their regions where they invite sponsors, partners and guest speakers to come along and present on relevant topics.

For our members it is an excellent and highly cost-effective way of getting bite-sized bits of training and CPD locally, on an ongoing basis. These meetings are very popular with our members as they can keep themselves up to date, but also with our sponsors and partners who can engage with the members at a local level on a regular basis across the country. Each region has three or four meetings a year, each typically lasting about four hours.
