Our second event also reflects that theme. For the first time in this region we held an event to recognise and congratulate members who had achieved Chartered Manager status. This event took place in Lincoln but our plan is to hold further events in other regional locations so that we can celebrate with all of our Chartered Managers. The CMI is the only professional body which can award this level of formal recognition and endorsement of an individual’s management and leadership skills. We believe gaining this recognition is something well worth celebrating individually, and collectively, as increases in the number of Chartered Managers supports the growth of leadership excellence throughout our organisations. This is something that I and the Board passionately support.
Aligned to this I was very pleased to be able to announce at the conference the launch of the CMI Chartered Manager of the Year award. Application to be considered for the award is open to all Chartered Managers and the winner will be announced at the President’s dinner at Kensington Palace in May 2019. If you are a Chartered Manager, please do consider putting yourself forward. It would be great if the winner was to come from this region!
