Welcome to the IoD East of England, composed of five branches from Herts in the West to Norfolk in the East.
As an IoD member you will be part of a strong regional and national business community. The camaraderie and the network that this brings has the power to connect, develop and influence. It is a centre of thought leadership, bringing policy makers and industry into informal dialogue. Together, we can create a powerful voice that can deliver opportunity, employment, and economic growth and shine a light on the East of England.
With several major universities, the East is a centre of innovation and culture, but more importantly is a gateway to UK export/import. The East is at the centre of investments including planned nuclear power projects, free port expansion and Lower Thames Crossing and is a powerhouse for business.
Now is the time to join us and make a difference. With growing partnerships and alliances, you can be part of the conversation. Follow us, connect with members, and be the first to hear about news and events across the region through our IoD East LinkedIn page.
