ICB membership is underpinned by a strong community network of local branches meeting regularly across the country.
ICB branches are currently being established across the country..
Reasons to attend
We’ve put together a list of our top reasons why you should attend a Branch meeting.
1. Brain gain
Speakers from leading organisations are regular guests at the branch meetings and are on hand to give you their expert advice. Not only will you be increasing your bookkeeping skills, but you will also be clocking up the hours towards your CPE targets.
You can expect to hear from experienced members or industry experts. Industry experts from Intuit, Sage and Xero will help in representing the software aspects.
2. Business potential
Branch meetings are a good opportunity to meet other professionals that you could potentially do business with.
Mingling with other business owners can be an eye-opener and an opportunity to ask advice, as well as the chance to meet a future business partner, employee or employer.
3. Boost confidence
Find “networking” a daunting experience? Networking can seem intimidating, but once you’ve done it, it gets easier and easier. ICB Branch meetings are a relaxed environment for you to meet fellow members; you are all in the same boat and all have something to offer one another.
4. Continuing Professional Development
Continuing Professional Education (CPE) is not only useful to help you remain knowledgeable and provide a quality service, but it is also an asset to you as a member of ICB. The simplest way for you to achieve CPE points is by attending and getting involved at your local ICB Branch Meetings. Each Branch aims to host around seven meetings each year.
With a different Branch in almost every county, there's always an event to attend and something to get excited about.
With local events taking place every week of the year you're sure to find some kindred spirits.
