Yorkshire & North East


leeds newcastle directors business

IoD Yorkshire & North East is committed to supporting our diverse member base through director development and the lobbying of key decision makers in the region and nationally.

Following the successful merger of our Yorkshire and North East regions, we now have a ‘super-region’ that serves as a powerful lobbying voice for the North of England.

Our wider region has one regional committee and six branches led by passionate chairs and their ambassadors who support local business communities by delivering a series of high-profile events that offer valuable networking and learning opportunities for our members.

Our purpose is to engage with our growing guiding, inspiring and supporting their life in business.

Don't miss a beat - be the best leader you can be

Look out for our CPD Professional Director Series and ensure you future-proof your board and organisation. You will be among other leaders across the region, which will also give you the opportunity to connect and learn from each other.
