Professional Forums and Interest Groups

As a CISI member you are welcome to join one, or all of our nine free Professional Forums as well as two Interest Groups. The events are conducted under the Chatham House Rule and provide the opportunity to network with like-minded professionals, listen to presentations from practitioners in the professional sector, engage in open discussion and share ideas and concerns in a confidential setting.

Explore topics relevant to your sector

The forums are free events open to all CISI members. Each forum is run by its own committee comprising practitioners in the relevant field who work closely with the CISI to plan forthcoming events, identify areas of interest and source speakers. Interest Group events are open to non-members.

Forum and Interest Group benefits

  • CISI members with all levels of experience and seniority are welcome
  • Speakers are leading sector specialists
  • Programmes are designed to meet the specific needs of the membership
  • Count towards your annual CPD target, as attendance hours are automatically logged if you use the CISI CPD Scheme

"When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed"
