CMSUK Online Issue 2

It's already been an interesting year, with a new US president making history before he stepped into office, and the UK being brought to its knees by a combination of economic turmoil and snow. 

With the likes of Woolworths and MFI closing its doors, it's an interesting time to be working with people who generally have employment problems. Will this make it harder to find appropriate jobs for our clients whilst so many redundancies are being made across the board?

Speaking of boards, CMSUK welcomes its three new members to the board, Sam Harris, Teresa Shaw and Nicole Thompson.  CMSUK are working towards offering its members a CRB check service, and to be providing all members with a portfolio to help them maintain their continuous professional development.

I would also like to thank Kim Russell for her contributions to both this and the previous newsletter.  I'm sure you will agree that she has provided some very useful and thought provoking articles, and she will be in the next issue too!

Thanks also to Heather (as always) for putting together this slideshow of the conference http://www.cmsuk.org/DocumentDetails.aspx?ID=73

The UKRC Standards are almost ready for launching, we encourage our members to be familiar with them, they are available via this link . CMSUK are in discussion with the UKRC and will update members accoridingly,

If you have any articles of interest, research you have undertaken, case studies or biographies for future issues, please contact Heather Roberts or me, Liz Haunch liz.haunch@icmc.org.uk
