Welcome to CIPFA in the Midlands region

UK map The Midlands is a fast-growing, vibrant and active region. We aim to support our members and students through a range of interesting and innovative seminars, training, mentoring, newsletters, and personal and career development.

To support our regional offering, we work with the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA), audit firms and our regional networks to ensure we provide a wide and interesting range of support to our existing members and to attract non-CIPFA delegates to their events.

The pace of change in the public sector continues to intensify, and we have a great group of volunteers committed to supporting the region to keep abreast of this. Our ever-successful sixth form management games continue to attract volunteers with renewed enthusiasm and engagement!

Join CIPFA Midlands on Facebook or follow @CIPFAMidlands on Twitter to keep up to date with news, events and discussions.

A reminder for anyone who may need support: CIPFA's Mental Health and Wellbeing Hub is available to you and anyone in your personal or workplace networks. The hub brings together information and support on a wide range of topics. Access is free of charge, anonymous and there's no need to register.

We have produced a guideline document on how to use the forum and some best practice hints and tips to help you get started.
