Volunteer opportunities

Find out how you can volunteer in the Midlands.

Regional Council

Nominations are invited from CIPFA members wishing to be elected to the Council of CIPFA in the Midlands to serve a two-year period from March 2017. The following vacancies will exist:

  • Five Council Members (plus another for one year to March 2018)
  • Assistant Treasurer

The Council meets four or five times annually, to shape local support to members and students, to raise the profile of CIPFA regionally and to provide a link with CIPFA HQ.  In addition, members have the opportunity to become involved in events, seminars and other initiatives across the region.

If you would like to discuss membership or find out more about the Regional Council, please contact CIPFA in the Midlands. If you would like to attend and observe the next council meeting being held in Nottingham on Thursday 8 December, please contact us at the same email address.

To nominate yourself, please complete the nomination form and e-mail to CIPFA in the Midlands, by 31 December 2016.

If there is an excess of nominations over vacancies, a vote of CIPFA members will be taken prior to the AGM, which will be held on Thursday 9 March 2017. The results of any ballot will be announced at the AGM. The Council may fill any casual vacancy as becomes necessary and subject to confirmation at the next AGM, or to consider co-option nominations for specific roles or interests.

Regional events

Members and students really appreciate being able to attend a range of evening and afternoon meetings on topical subjects at local venues, together with keystone events such as the region's annual seminar. Volunteers are needed to join the regional events team to plan future seminars and events. No experience is needed, just enthusiasm!

You will be expected to attend planning meetings from time to time and to help in the arranging of at least one  meeting or event in the Midlands during the year.

For more information please contact the events team.

Management games

If you're a CIPFA member or student, please consider volunteering to help with the management games which are held across the region in June and July for post-16 students. You will have an enjoyable and rewarding time and add to your professional skills, too! We are looking for support from members – general, student and retired, all welcome – to help take forward these very successful games. Please download a briefing for more information.
