Welcome from East Midlands
I am extremely proud and honoured to have been elected as the regional chair for the East Midlands region for 2019. As a regional committee we once again have four main focuses this year:
1) to grow and expand our membership committee through the addition of new members,
2) to provide regular and informative communications on pressing issues
3) to encourage our ever-expanding Young Brokers and
4) to continue to put on a varied, informative and enjoyable programme of events.
Why Not Join the Committee?
We are always looking for new people to join us, so would love to see fresh faces who are keen to get involved and join our small and friendly group. As our activity level increases, we need to continue to grow the number of willing members who provide time to plan, arrange and attend the range of events we put on – so if you are willing to help, my contact details are at the bottom and I’d love to hear from you!
The BIBA Manifesto for 2019 has now been issued, and with BIBA being the UK’s leading general insurance intermediary, representing the interest of insurance brokers, intermediaries and our customers, there are a vast range of issues being addressed that we want to keep you informed about, both on a regional and national basis, so we will be increasing our communications to you to allow you to keep up to date with everything that is going on, as well as encouraging feedback.
Again, I would like to hear from you if there are any issues you may have that you would like raised – it is a particularly interesting, challenging and changing world in broking and we all need the help and support of our Trade Body to ensure that our voice is heard both within the UK and beyond it.
Our Young Brokers are going from strength to strength. We have various lunch time seminars and networking events lined up, enabling them to learn and grow both personally and professionally.
We are also continuing to foster and work more closely with the Young Professionals from the Chartered Insurance Institute in 2019, led by our Young Broker Ambassador Flo Dennis, in the promoting of our industry to the younger members.
Programme of Events
We have a range of events planned for 2019, ranging from lunch time forums to compliance workshops to networking events. Make sure you book early to guarantee your place.
Finally, if you have any specific topics of interest, training requirements or need access to facilities and events, let me or one of the committee know. We are always open to suggestions about what BIBA can do for you and welcome your input.

I look forward to seeing you at future events.
