Welcome to the North Yorkshire Branch. North Yorkshire covers 3,102 square miles, stretching from Scarborough on the North Sea coast to Bentham in the west, and from the edge of Teesside in the north to the edge of the West Yorkshire conurbation in the south. It is England’s largest and arguably most beautiful county.
The North Yorkshire Branch has around 1,800 members and is run by a very dedicated group of volunteers who work on the Branch Committee. Our primary aim is to help all our members to develop their knowledge, skills and potential wherever they are in their career and wherever they are situated geographically in our large and widespread county.
Our Branch Committee is currently in the process of reviewing our strategy in line with CIPD strategy and the expressed needs of our members. You will see some changes over the coming 12 months as a result of our discussions and we encourage you to send us your ideas on what you think we can do for you, especially if you don’t currently engage with us. We genuinely want to know what you want from your Branch.
We will continue to bring regular daytime seminars out to where you live, as far as that is possible, in various locations across North Yorkshire. That won’t change. We will continue to organise longer, quarterly evening events alternating between venues in York and Harrogate with higher profile speakers. And places at our events will remain free to our CIPD members, with a small charge for non-members who we encourage to join us from other communities and professional groups across North Yorkshire. We will also organise regular webinars for our members and continue to support our LinkedIn and Facebook communities and our Twitter followers. I look forward to meeting you at an event or on a webinar soon.
