Advancing the credit profession

Sheffield and District

Welcome to the Sheffield and District Branch. Click here to view committee details.

I am Paula Uttley, your Chair for a third term for 2020/21.

Having been involved in the Sheffield and District Branch for over twenty years now, I take great pleasure in continuing as Chair for a third term.

Each year in addition to the AGM, the branch usually holds another five or six events, which are educational and/or social and allow like-minded credit professionals the chance at some events to gain CPD hours but always networking opportunities. Collectively, the current committee have many years’ experience in the credit profession and have a wealth of knowledge across different sectors which they are only too glad to share with you. If you are a new member or you are a credit professional just starting out in your career, then attending branch events can be an invaluable way to grow your network and to share experiences with other professionals.

As a member you will receive a weekly “CICM Essentials” e-mail which is packed full of useful information, including the upcoming events of the Sheffield and District Branch. I encourage you to take full advantage of these events, which are usually free of charge, and are just one of the many advantages of being a CICM member. Please share the event details with a colleague or two who may also benefit and bring them along, they don’t need a be a member!

Along with the rest of the committee, I would be delighted to hear from any members, or anyone thinking of becoming a member, be that to provide any assistance, to hear your views on your branch and ideas for future events, to discuss your interest in joining the committee or simply just to have a chat. You may also wish to join us on LinkedIn where you can share your experiences and debate relevant current topics as well as receive notifications about upcoming branch events.

The committee would like to thank all sponsors and members for their continued support of the branch and its events in 2019 and look forward to meeting you again and both welcoming new members and promoting credit as a profession across the region in 2020.


Kind Regards

Paula Uttley MCICM
