West Midlands

Welcome to CIMA's West Midlands area page

Upcoming conferences and events

With the rapidly changing situation and seriousness of COVID-19 we have decided to cancel all face to face events until May 2021. The health and safety of all our members, students and staff is our primary concern and priority, therefore, we have been following the advice provided by Government, Public Health England, and the World Health Organisation.

Our UK events team will be looking to deliver as many of the planned events as possible virtually to ensure that you can still keep up to date with your CPD and details will be shared in due course. We will continue to monitor the situation and hope that normal service for our events programme will resume shortly.

The West Midlands volunteer committee caters for over 9,000 CIMA members and students. Whatever stage you are at in your career, your local branch can be a really useful resource – from keeping you up to date on changes in legislation, to providing you with a range of fantastic networking opportunities and links to the profession.
