Yorkshire

Urban area in Yorkshire, England

Yorkshire IoD is committed to supporting our 1,300 members through director development and the lobbying of key decision makers in the region and nationally.

We are working with the region's universities to promote our IoD student membership and, early in 2016, secured a pilot for apprentices to have access to the IoD's student membership programme to be launched in the autumn. Additionally our Young Directors are working across the region to represent the leaders of the future entrepreneurship. We encourage healthy debate, ask our members about their key business issues and seek to feed those back to policy makers to work on a real improvement to the business environment.

Our regional director, supported by the administrative team from the hub in Leeds, works for our four branches to deliver a series of high-profile events that offer valuable networking and learning opportunities for our members and which have attracted national media attention.

Yorkshire Branches

Through our four active branches in north, south, east and west Yorkshire we represent members' interests at the highest level and have been responsible for attracting some of the most influential and aspirational speakers in the UK to the region.
