The West Midlands region includes Birmingham, the Black Country, Shropshire, Staffordshire and parts of Derbyshire. It encompasses key towns and cities that include Wolverhampton, Dudley, Telford, Stoke, Shrewsbury and Stafford.

There are two local branches which cover Herefordshire and Worcestershire; and Warwickshire (including Coventry, Warwick, Stratford upon Avon and Solihull).

About Coventry and Warwickshire branch

IoD West Midlands, under the chairmanship of David Trevis-Smith, is looking for members from the Coventry and Warwickshire area to join the local branch committee.

We are very active in the area, and work hard to provide a regular programme of member events and activities. We are in need of fresh member input in order that the voice of local directors is heard and the needs of the region prioritised. 

About Hereford and Worcester branch

With around 280 members, the Hereford and Worcester branch is ably led by Joanne Hodgetts and Mark Richardson who, with the help of the volunteer committee and IoD staff, support local members and organises inspirational and valuable business events in the area.

​ West Midlands Young Directors Forum

The YDF aims to provide opportunities for younger, less experienced directors and executives to learn both from each other and from the more experienced business leaders who attend the events.
