APM South Wales and West of England branch

Welcome to the APM South Wales and West of England branch community.

The branch offers a wide range of events including an annual dinner, a one-day conference, evening events and site visits. We encourage networking between members at all events.

We recognise the different needs of our members who are new to the profession and offer introductory as well as advanced level events. 

Our events are varied and we aim to cover a good range of APM Body of Knowledge topics. We also look for opportunities for events on key projects of local interest, such as the new Southmead Hospital. 

Through our Branch Corporate Advisory Group (BCAG), we work closely with our local Corporate Members and Higher Education Institutions to ensure we understand their needs and how we can work together for the benefit of all of our members.

We provide development opportunities for newcomers to the profession by hosting an annual Project Management Competition for teams from Corporates and HEIs.  

Our membership is widely dispersed, stretching from beyond Penzance in the south, to Gloucester in the north, and beyond Milford Haven in South Wales, with the principal concentration in the Bristol area. Members are from a wide range of backgrounds, including banking, civil engineering, transport and defence.

Our challenge is to meet the professional project management needs of this diverse and geographically distributed population. We have been growing and now have over 2800 members and 55 Corporate Members registered in the region. 

To provide ample geographic coverage, we have two active chapters: Cornwall, Devon & Somerset, and South Wales.
