About us

Welcome to the Thames Valley Branch community.

The aim of Thames Valley Branch (TVB) is to deliver a programme of activities aligned to the APM 2020 Strategy that are diverse, inclusive and inspire volunteers to work together towards achieving the overall APM vision.

TVB has more than 3000 members dispersed across an area that extends from Aylesbury in the north, to Petersfield in the south, and from Swindon to Kingston-upon-Thames.

Regular events provide the opportunity to network and for Continuing Professional Development.  Our events usually focus on a topical theme associated with the profession of project management and often have a direct link to the APM Body of Knowledge. TVB also runs joint events with other APM Branches and APM Specific Interest Groups.

Why not join us at one of our events and find out more about the branch?  Alternatively click on the ‘About Us’ tab on the TVB web page or use the link below to get in touch and one of the team will contact you.

APM Thames Valley Branch committee results for 2022-2023
We are delighted to confirm that the following nominees will be on APM Thames Valley Branch committee for 2022-2023.


The mission of the Thames Valley branch (TVB) of the Association for Project Management is to raise the profile of project management in the Thames Valley through:

  • the communication of project management theory and practice;
  • the promotion of the APM Body of Knowledge (BoK);
  • catering for the needs of the current and future project management community.

The TVB has an extensive programme of activities throughout the year organised on behalf of members by the Branch Committee and Branch Volunteers.  We have a number of active work streams including: Events Planning; Corporate Liaison; Higher Education Institute Engagement and the annual PM Challenge competition.

Over the last five years, the branch has also been particularly successful in obtaining additional funding from APM to undertake a number of research projects, and we are always willing to listen to ideas and suggestions from our members.

The TVB Committee meets in the Reading area (currently virtually) at 6:00pm on every second Wednesday of the month, why not join us and find out how to become further involved with the APM in your local area.
