Due to an unprecedented high number of people having booked onto this session and in light of our budgetary restrictions and significant financial challenge we are currently experiencing, we have taken the decision, as a branch to cut back the planned catering of drinks and a finger buffet to drinks and a pastry as we can provide this to a higher volume of people at the same cost. We appreciate this falls below our usual standards of catering offer and sincerely apologise that our financial situation means having to take this approach. We look forward to seeing you and anticipate returning to our usual catering arrangements for our next meeting.
When & Where
CIPD Chiltern Branch
CIPD Chiltern Branch is an important local hub for HR professionals, providing opportunities for continuous professional development and two way communication with Head Office, as well as providing a local touch-point for CIPD members with opportunities for networking.
The branch has around 2,200 members from all levels and specialisms across the Human Resources field. From directors to students, we have established links with businesses in the local area as well as the major CIPD course providers (Amersham and Wycombe College, Aylesbury College and Buckinghamshire New University).
Although we have only a limited number of specialist groups, we pride ourselves on providing an annual learning programme that is second to none. Focused around three major hubs, Beaconsfield, Slough and Aylesbury, we hold monthly events that facilitate networking opportunities and personal development in a number of leading edge topics. Through these we strive to help members to develop in their chosen careers and contribute to the success of their organisations.
