Find out how you can volunteer in the Midlands.
The Council meets four 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. Nominations to Council are sought in December and any elections are held in February or March. However, there is always space for a willing volunteer and a number of co-opted roles are currently vacant. To find out more or to express an interest, please contact us E: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Sixth Form 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.
