Events

Social

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.

Following our highly successful AGM and Fuddle in Loughborough on 11th January 2020, we are delighted to publish our calendar of events for the rest of the year. More details will be added as each event draws closer, but for now, please do add them to your diary!

Next meeting

Wednesday 5th February from 7pm
The Silk Mill pub in Derby

We have booked the upstairs private room in Steph Donat’s name. Street parking is available nearby to the pub and there is a car park next to the Cathedral/Amen Alley that charges about £1.80 per hour.  A Parksafe Systems is also close by (on Jury Street/Bold Lane) but this will probably be more expensive. If you intend on coming by train please let Steph know and she will provide you with some directions on how best to walk to the pub (approx. 20 mins).

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.

Join us for our next CPD event on 21st May 2020 in conjunction with the University of Leicester: Building Bridges 2020.

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.
