Advancing the credit profession

North West


Welcome to the North West Branch. Click here to view committee details.


We have one of the larger branches in terms of both membership and geography with our area covering Cheshire to Cumbria!!

We normally meet 4 times a year including a special event to attract new Student members. Events aim to be topical, educational and fun!! Ranging from a mock court session (usually with fantastic acting from the committee) to Export Credit sessions with case studies.

These events are great Networking opportunities and a chance to grow your contact book as your career progresses.

Our goal is to attract new members and encourage people to attend our meetings. By attending, you help influence how the branch is run and what you want to talk about.

Please get in touch if you want further information or just to have a chat.
