Tim Balcon, IEMA’s new chief executive, has announced a “CEO roadshow” of events that will give thousands of members the opportunity to help shape the future direction of the Institute.

Balcon is currently developing Vision 2020, a guiding agenda that will guide and measure IEMA’s performance over the next seven years. The project has now reached the stage
where member views are being sought, and they are crucial to its progression.

“With the clarity that comes with 20:20 vision, our Vision 2020 will give IEMA ultimate direction, transparency and purpose,” Balcon says. “But we cannot and will not form the content and anticipated outcomes of Vision 2020 alone. We need input from members to ensure that we not only become what you want and need us to be in seven years’ time, but that we
provide the right leadership.”

Between now and mid-September, Balcon will personally attend 14 events around the UK and Ireland to gain face-to-face feedback on the proposed structure and content of Vision 2020. Webinars on 29 July and 22 August will enable everyone who cannot attend the regional events to engage in the consultation process and offer their perspective on what has been drafted. A third webinar, on 5 August, will be held specifically for international members.

Invites to attend any of the scheduled events have been sent out to members. Places are likely to be taken up quickly, so to ensure that you book your seat today to avoid missing out on this chance to influence the Institute's future direction.
