We’re a social bunch here in the East Midlands and like to get together every month. We generally meet in the evening on the first Wednesday of the month in a different city across our region. We usually opt for a pub that is fairly central and serves food should anyone fancy some grub whilst having a natter. We can be easily identified by new members as at least one of us has a copy of the latest ITI Bulletin to hand. Our Saturday meetings are held during the day and wider family members are more than welcome to join us, too.
Our next events are planned as follows:
Wednesday 2nd October 2019: Derby meeting. We’ll be meeting at the Silk Mill pub from 7 p.m. onwards. Some people will be eating and others simply pop along for a drink – please do join us if you can. There is on-street car parking nearby (free after 8 p.m., £2.30 pay and display 7-8 p.m.) or the Assembly Rooms multi-storey car park is a short distance away.
Saturday 5th October 2019: Walk at Bradgate Park, Leicestershire. We’ll be meeting at midday for lunch, followed by a stroll through the park. Parking costs £4 or take the No. 120 bus from Leicester straight to the park.
Wednesday 6th November 2019: Leicester meeting
Wednesday 4th December 2019: Nottingham meeting

Continuing Professional Development
CPD involves refining and expanding your skills and subject knowledge, as well as keeping up to date with commercial and linguistic developments, learning new technologies and contributing to our profession. The ITI recommends that all its members undertake 30 hours of CPD in each membership year, and as such the EMRG strives to organise two workshops a year to help local ITI members achieve this CPD goal.
Our most recent CPD offering was on Saturday 21st September 2019, where local East Midlands accountancy firm Bulley Davey were on hand to guide us through all things financial. It was a very useful workshop and our speaker Mandy was incredibly generous with her time and advice. We’ll be publishing a more detailed write-up in due course.
