About us

Welcome to the APM North West Branch community.

The area covered by the APM North West Branch is a large one, extending up to the border with Scotland beyond Carlisle, down to Telford and also across Northern Wales to Anglesey, with the Isle of Man covered too.

The APM North West branch membership is dispersed throughout the region but there is a concentration in the Liverpool, Warrington, Manchester belt.

Owing to some key companies being located in the region, there are also member clusters around the Fylde, Barrow and Sellafield areas.

The boundaries are not hard drawn, in the sense that APM members may go to events in a neighbouring region and certainly all are welcome to the events in the north west, be it that you are temporarily working in the area, passing through or have made a special trip.

Discover networking opportunities in the North West and learn about latest developments in project management.
