Happy New Year from the Chairman of CIMA West Midlands
Happy New Year to all of my friends, colleagues and contacts - 2018 marks my 35th year within industry and the 20th anniversary of my first involvement with the CIMA branch and area committees (going on the be Branch President of North West Midlands from 2003-2005 and again from 2012-2014) and Chairman of CIMA West Midlands from the beginning of 2015 (so now entering my fourth year in the role).
2018 is shaping up to be a challenging year for UK businesses, with the three CIMA branches in the West Midlands already planning some excellent events to support our members and students, along with their companies.
Following our highly successful Prestige Event in 2017, where Lord Digby Jones was our very passionate keynote speaker, 7th June 2018 will see this year's Annual Lecture at The Council House, Birmingham, given by David Smith, Economics Editor at The Sunday Times, and the Bank of England.
We are always looking for volunteers at Branch Committee level to assist us with our work, so if you're interested in helping us then please contact Julie Witts at Julie.Witts@aicpa-cima.com who will be able to give you further details.
