About us

The Midlands Area Partnership (MAP) is a regional group of ten branches in the Midlands area which combine to cover 20,000 CIPD members. The group aims to promote the CIPD's purpose throughout the Midlands region by sharing best practice, improving links between the individual branches and providing networking opportunities for all our members. The Midlands Area Partnership is led by a group made up of the Branch Chairs from the ten branches, which meets three times a year. They are supported by the Midlands Regional Branch Co-ordinator Eleanor Lloyd Jones who can be contacted by email.

The ten branches are: Birmingham, Black Country, Coventry & Warwickshire, Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire, Hereford & Worcester, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, North Staffordshire & South Cheshire and Shropshire.
