Professional Forums

Members share their ideas and listen to presentations by other practitioners in any of the six free Professional Forums run by the institute, available to all members (except students). These highly regarded forums enable you to meet with other professionals and engage in open discussions in a confidential setting, as forums are conducted under the Chatham House Rule.
