SEPTEMBER -2018-


CEO Chat


The past month has been very revealing! I refer to the outcome and findings from the most detailed IIMS membership survey to have been undertaken for four years. The survey findings provide a snapshot into what members think about their organisation, but the verbatim comments - (of which there were dozens and dozens) - reveal far more. Nearly 300 members responded to the survey, equivalent to almost one third of the membership, a high percentage return for a piece of research. So thank you.


A number of these verbatim comments have been captured and published in the Report Magazine September issue, both positive and negative, together with my own personal interpretation of the results. Whilst it is clear that the overwhelming majority of members are generally content with their professional body, there are a few learnings that we can and must take. I am particularly heartened that more than 70% of respondents rank IIMS higher that most or some similar organisations. Specifically, I am concerned that members in Ireland feel let down by a lack of training opportunities and, further afield, those in Australia and New Zealand too. Of course geography plays a key part, but the dormant branches in those two countries have made it more of a challenge to organise activities on the ground recently. However, I am pleased to announce an IIMS event in Sydney, Australia on 2 November. Watch for details. But we must strive to provide the best possible organisation we can for members, no matter where in the world they are.
