CIPFA is the only professional accountancy body exclusively dedicated to public finance in the world. Our 14,000 members work throughout the public services, in national audit agencies, in major accountancy firms, and in other bodies where public money needs to be effectively and efficiently managed. CIPFA’s portfolio of qualifications are the foundation for a career in public finance. They include the benchmark professional qualification for public sector accountants as well as a postgraduate diploma for people already working in leadership positions. They are taught by our in-house CIPFA Education and Training Centre as well as other places of learning around the world. We champion high performance in public services, translating our experience and insight into clear advice and practical services. They include information and guidance, courses and conferences, property and asset management solutions, consultancy and interim people for a range of public sector clients.
Globally, CIPFA shows the way in public finance by standing up for sound public financial management and good governance. We work with donors, partner governments, accountancy bodies and the public sector around the world to advance public finance and support better public services.
The CIPFA in the Midlands regional society covers a large area stretching from the Welsh border in the west to Lincolnshire in the east, and from the Yorkshire border in the north to the Wiltshire border in the south. We have an active regional council, a varied programme of events and seminars across the region and a students society.
