The region covered by the branch stretches across several counties from Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire in the South, to Derbyshire and Shropshire in the North and takes in the counties in and around Birmingham and Northampton.

If you are new to the project profession or the region please come along and attend events for your own benefit. The wide range of events and meetings provide opportunities for all involved in project management to meet and exchange ideas. We are always looking to refresh our sub-committees and welcome all ages and backgrounds to join us and help take the profession forward.
