Beds & Herts Group Objectives 

  • to promote the values and professional status of ICSA within the group and the wider community.
  • to provide a mix of professional development and socially based events to achieve the widest possible appeal for members and students.
  • to attract participation from all sections of group membership and where possible other professional bodies and professionally interested persons.

We organise a programme of topical events each year, which include a wide range of professional seminars, based on company secretarial challenges and items of particular interest for chartered secretaries.
