Best practice membership is a launchpad for development

Annual membership opens doors for individuals and teams, with access to year-round advice, networking & support. Each package includes free places to our large, popular conferences in April & November, plus other regular events and access to our online member portal. 

Join our community of professionals, with one of our core best practice packages, and you can “add-on” funds to build a rounded development programme that includes the Learning Academy, Benchmarking & Accreditation or Professional Services. You can expand to drive improvement when momentum builds or step back and change focus if the business requires.
