Save the Date - Wednesday 25 April

Plans are underway for the first Members' Seminar of 2018, which will be kindly hosted by RSM at their offices in Nottingham. Details will be confirmed in due course, but do save the date in your diary: as always, our events aim to keep you up to date with the latest news and development affecting our industry.

Exciting times ahead

2018 promises a lot of changes for HIAF. The Forum's co-chairs, Angela Gooch and Helen Young are currently in conversation with the Executive Committee regarding how the Forum can be modernised.

This is where you come in. Obtaining feedback from members - on what you want from HIAF, our events, as well as how we can develop more interactive services for you - is critical to achieving this.

We're keen to hear what you think and what you'd like to see from HIAF in the future. Please contact Angela ( and Helen (
