Chair: Mrs Fiona Rogerson MIOA
The Midlands Branch was established 1995 and has since continued to provide a programme of meetings and a forum for IOA members in the Midlands and beyond.
The branch generally holds one meeting every other month with one of these being a half day meeting. The remainder are weekday evenings. Each meeting usually consists of a presentation by a speaker followed by questions and an informal discussion where all inputs are welcome. Several members of the branch and other attendees have been known to continue discussions at a local curry house. We try to cover a diverse range of subjects and all members (and non members) are welcome to attend.
The Midlands Branch committee members normally meet informally but hold one formal meeting in late Autumn to discuss the programme for the following year. The Branch AGM generally takes place at the November meeting. We are always pleased to receive offers of presentations or suggestions for topics, or venues for meetings.
Please email your ideas to the IOA at firstname.lastname@example.org marked for the attention of Paul Shields.
We also provide certificates of attendance for Continuing Professional Development.
Remember, the IOA is your organisation, so make it work for you by getting involved with your regional branch.
