Our committee is made up of volunteers from a mixture of sectors including retail, not for profit, financial services, and local and central government; who bring a range of in-house, co-sourced and outsourced internal audit expertise and experience.
We aim to provide high-value, local, topical events with leading presenters, support the interests of members in the local area and act as a communication channel between members and the central Institute.
There are a range of networking opportunities, which also count towards CPE obligations, and we always welcome suggestions from members on future topics and events.
If you are not a member already, please take a look at what we offer. There is something for everyone, whatever your sector, business or role and we are always pleased to see new faces.
“The Committee is a fantastic group of people who all work towards providing the best possible experience to Northwest members. Whether it be joining the committee or simply exploring the attendance at one of our events, get in touch. We love interaction with fellow members.”
