What we will do

  • Invite all interested parties to join our branch activities.
  • Develop a committee and hold elections in 2023 including sub-committees.
  • Seek to develop membership by 20% year on year to give the Institute a voice in the region and to establish IIRSM as the go to Institute for risk information.

How will we achieve this?

We need active participation from members and non-members. We must give our members value for money and bring our message to the companies our members work for, showing the management the value of good risk management; including cost savings, increased production, decreases in accidents and incidents, lowering insurance costs etc.

We will undertake the following activities for our network:

  • Support our members on their CPD journey to become Fellows of our Institute.
  • Communicate with our branch members about the latest news and updates from IIRSM’s head office on a quarterly basis.
  • Work with training providers and event organisers to gain discounted attendance at events and on courses.
  • Support our members in employment opportunities.
  • Share information about risk management to our members

We look forward to welcoming new members to IIRSM.
