VPMA Regional Organisers Required
One of the key areas of the VPMA is its regional activity, so that we can try to bring networking opportunities and CPD to members (and non-members) across the whole of the UK.
In order for us to continue developing this regional structure, we do require the assistance of our members, in terms of assisting us by co-ordinating and hosting regional meetings.
We are particularly keen to try and find Regional Organisers who would be willing to hold such meetings in the Yorkshire, East Midlands, East Anglia and London regions. However, if you live in an area that isn’t covered by our current Regional Organisers, and you feel there is a need for regional meetings, then we would like to hear from you as well.
Please see “the role of a regional organiser”. If you would like to consider becoming a Regional Organiser, please contact the VPMA Secretariat.
We do hope that you can assist us in continuing to develop the VPMA’s regional structure.
