A key feature of Branch activities is organising both CPD and social functions.
As part of a Branch, you will have the opportunity to attend ‘Branch Personnel Day’ which is usually held annually at CILEx Head Office or an alternative venue.
Previous attendees have said that it is a great way to meet other Branch members, to network with them and share ideas of best practice. You will also get the opportunity to meet CILEx staff who you may deal with on a regular basis.
Thoughts of the things most enjoyed at Branch Personnel Day by previous attendees:
"The positive comments made by all CILEx members present to progress and promote CILEx. I felt encouraged about the future and that CILEx is taking positive steps forward on behalf of all members."
“Engagement with other Branch members.”
“Clear communication from Leadership.”
“Productive day and interaction with other representatives of Branches.”
“It provided a useful insight into CILEx operations, structure and compliance requirements. It was interesting to hear about future plans and objectives”.
CPD events that your local Branch may hold include seminars, revision sessions and talks. Take a look at all the Industry Partners who are available to branches on our Branch Resources Page and if one is of interest to you why not ask your local branch to host your talk of choice.
Local branches enjoy organising regular social events for their members, ranging from monthly lunch clubs and informal evening meals, through to bowling and formal black-tie dinners.
These events tend to provide opportunities to get to know local CILEx members as well as other legal professionals, to help raise your profile and increase your network.
For further information about the events coming up in your area, find your local branch, and take a look at the news and events section for that Branch.
