Members in Practice (MiP) Committee

Our Members in Practice are proudly supported by the MiP Committee - a panel comprised of experienced MiPs volunteering their time to support and engage with our MiPs globally. Find out more about the Panel and how you can get involved below.

Volunteering Oppurtunities

CIMA members come from a wide range of sectors and roles, and we believe that our members know better than anyone else what our members want and need, so events organised by our members ensure that the content is the most relevant.

Our MiP Committee organise and host a wide range of events throughout the year - from webinars and networking events, to the flagship Members in Practice conference, which has been held annually since 1985. We always welcome any members that is keen to volunteer, working any volunteering opportunities around the time that you can dedicate towards the role. This is also a fantastic way to meet fellow MiPs, learn new skills and raise your profile within the local business community.

Members in Practice (MiP) Committee

The MiP Committee is comprised of eight elected volunteers (for a three year term), as well as two co-opted members (for a one year term). The roles on the Committee are rotated every three years - this is in line with the Terms of Reference and ensures we frequently have volunteering oppurtunities for our members.

The Committee holds an Annual Members Meeting in June, where newly elected Committee members are announced. To put yourself forward for next year's nominations, please look out for future communications which will include all of the relevant details. You can also find out more by emailing
