A year on from its inception, the CII’s Manifesto Transformation Programme has consolidated its original 14 workstreams into six. This reflects the CII’s progression from the 'discovery' to the 'delivery' phase of the initiative.
One of these six workstreams will focus wholly on improving and developing wider engagement with our members based across the UK.
To help develop this workstream further Grant Scott, Vice President for Local Institutes, will be working with Lee Travis, Partnership and Engagement Director, over the coming 12 months as a ‘membership ambassador’ to consult with the membership and help deliver key messages.
The role will initially look at gathering and providing intel to further shape the local membership proposition provided by the CII centrally, including the centralised CPD programme due to roll out later this year.
Grant will be visiting number of institutes over the coming months to talk about membership engagement and will be asking for your thoughts to ensure your comments and ideas are heard and presented back to the CII.
Grant Scott commented; “Feedback from our members is very important and sometimes it is easier for individuals to pass their comments to somebody they know or can identify with rather than send them via what can sometimes be perceived as an impersonal medium. My role as a Vice President with responsibility for local institutes, positions me as an ideal person to engage with the membership ensuring that the CII reaches further to the members, so that their views, comments and ideas are heard.”
