CIPFA members working in Europe have the opportunity to keep up to date with professional developments and aid their continuing professional development by attending the group's annual seminar and other events. These provide the opportunity for a positive exchange of ideas and support links with CIPFA in London.

Of the members working in Europe, most work on a permanent or temporary basis for one of the European institutions in Brussels or Luxembourg. Others work in the private sector in various countries.

CIPFA European Group's Annual Seminar and Annual General Meeting

7 November 2018

CIPFA European Group's Annual Seminar and Annual General Meeting took place in Brussels on Wednesday 7 November 2018. The Seminar and Meeting were both well attended.  Don Peebles, Head of CIPFA Policy and Technical UK, presented a professional update from CIPFA at the Seminar, which referenced Brexit, Ethics and CIPFA's forthcoming management code, among other subjects.  Victoria Bainbridge, (Group Honorary Secretary), gave a presentation on the issues of digitalisation.  Members enjoyed lively debate on the wide range of topics raised by the presentations.

At the Group's Annual General Meeting in the afternoon, members received updates on developments since the last meeting and elected office holders for the years 2018-19 and 2019-20.  Draft minutes of the meeting are available to download.
