About Cambridgeshire branch
The Cambridgeshire branch is ably led by its chair Carolyn Rand who, with the help of IoD staff and the volunteer committee, supports local members and organises inspirational and valuable business events in the area.
The IoD Cambridgeshire branch covers the whole county, as well as the PE postcodes of South Lincolnshire, and has a membership comprising a diverse cross-section of business leaders and senior executives. The branch’s role is to provide for the needs of local members within the scope of the IoD charter.
Under the leadership of Carolyn Rand, the committee, which represents local members' interests, puts together a diary of events to appeal to a wide range of people. These include networking meetings, company and industry visits and social activities. We work with neighbouring branches in the IoD East of England region on key events and to allow region-wide to access all events for our respective members.
The branch also has plans to engage more with the local business community, link with media organisations, improve connections with education and work hard to develop its appeal to diverse groups. We are particularly working on ways to improve communication with members and support for not-for-profit organisations such as charities.
All Cambridgeshire events can be attended by IoD members from other branches and in many cases non-members are also welcome to come along.
