Specialist Groups

Specialist Groups are a valuable benefit of membership as they will keep you up to date on all subjects relevant to you. You can attend as many meetings as you like at any of our Specialist Groups.

The meetings are about networking and are a chance to compliment your existing knowledge, contribute towards your continuing professional development (CPD), and build your exposure to both people in and information on your chosen field as well as others you’re interested in.

Our 50+ Specialist Groups provide an unrivalled opportunity to keep up with current developments in your area(s) of interest:
