Who's in your region

The members of the CIPFA in the Midlands Regional Council are listed below.

The regional council has overall responsibility for managing the region's affairs. It meets three or four times annually at venues across the midlands region, to consider a variety of business. Agendas and action notes can be found on the meetings and minutes page. To contact members, please contact E: cim@cipfa.org.

The regional council is assisted by other groups, for example the Students' Society, the events team, the December club for retired members and the CIPFA Midlands Audit Training Seminars (CATS) organising committee.

CIPFA Midlands promotes links with related professional bodies, such as the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) and the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA). We are a member of the Professional Institute West Midlands (PINWM), which promotes networking between professionals, runs continuous professional development events with key speakers, and raises the profile of the member institutes.
