Croeso! A warm welcome to Mid and North Wales branch, the newest CIPD branch in the UK and located in arguably the most beautiful part. This branch was formed in December 2014 following discussion about how the CIPD can best meet the needs of its members in Wales, especially when those members are geographically dispersed.
We believe that you can benefit most from your membership by being actively involved in the Branch activities and we want to listen to your views about how we can do that in Mid and North Wales. This is a relatively new branch and it is up to all of us to shape the branch in a way that will mean as many as possible can be involved and to strengthen the profile of HR practitioners in Mid and North Wales. Because of the geographical limitations we hold separate branch events in two ‘clusters’, in Mid Wales and in North Wales.
Separate committee meetings are held, with Lesley Hall Chairing the north Committee with Sue Chambers and Paul Edwards sharing the Chair in Mid Wales. The committees welcome involvement from members and would also appreciate suggestions about events you would wish to see. We would be delighted if you are interested in hosting an event – or indeed join a committee.
The CIPD is developing a CIPD Wales structure to give even more emphasis to CIPD Wales to meet the needs of students and HR practitioners in Wales.
Please do contact Lesley or Sue with your views about the CIPD in Mid and North Wales. Comments and ideas really are very welcome.
Lesley and Sue
