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 fourth term for 2021/22.

Having been involved in the Sheffield and District Branch for over twenty years now, I take great pleasure in continuing as Chair for a fourth and what will be my final term.

Are you interested in finding out more about joining the Sheffield & District Branch Committee? Want to give something back? Raise your profile? Grow your professional network? Please give me a call and get involved.

Things have been a little different of late and this year we held our first ever virtual AGM in February. As all branch events must remain in the virtual world for now, you will receive invites to not only your local branch events, but all branch events. Of course, when it is safe to do so, we can’t wait to arrange a couple of in person branch events later in the year. These will be 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. The local branch network is just one of the many invaluable members benefits which is there for you to help keep you informed and help support you in your work and professional development. Please share 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 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, guest speakers and members for their continued support of the branch and its events in 2020 and look forward to meeting you again and both welcoming new members and promoting credit as a profession across the region in 2021.

Kind Regards

Paula Uttley MCICM
