Local groups and regions

Page owner: Community director

The CIEP has 44 local groups throughout the United Kingdom, two international groups, and two CIEP Cloud Clubs (East and West), all made up of CIEP members. What each group does varies. Most meet regularly, providing opportunities for passing on knowledge and networking. In addition, they may visit local printers and other relevant venues, have speakers at their meetings, organise training and/or advertise their expertise to local businesses.

Businesses and organisations looking for local freelance editorial expertise can get in touch with the relevant local group coordinator for information and contact details.

CIEP Members and Friends are welcome at all local group events. If you don't already belong to the Institute, you're welcome to attend up to three local meetings before deciding whether to join.
