PFS Regions

The PFS Regional Structure

The regional structure is a vital part of the Personal Finance Society. Our Regions are run by teams of dedicated volunteer committees across the UK.

Regular meetings deliver a range of speakers providing motivation, business ideas, regulatory information and technical content. Regional Meetings and Workshops are free to members and provide an ideal opportunity to network and share thoughts and ideas.

England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are divided geographically into 27 PFS regions (Jersey, Guernsey and Isle of Man are not bound by all of these guidelines). All PFS members are allocated to a region. Most members select the region in which they live or work and the default region is based on the member's residential postcode but can be changed upon request.

The purpose of the regional structure is to ensure that PFS members have the opportunity to obtain maximum value from their membership through regional events and activities; help drive, develop and promote the Society and its objectives; and benefit from the social and networking opportunities.

Each of the PFS regions has its own committee (with the exception of Guernsey) and are essential in maintaining the future growth and professional standing of the Society. The committees are run by member elected volunteers with the objective of supporting the Society in achieving its objectives, which include:

  • Delivery and oversight of quarterly regional conferences
  • Widening awareness of the Society and its mission within the community
  • Organising training and educational events for members
  • Facilitating the development of interpersonal and business skills and technical knowledge
  • Supporting and encouraging professional development and higher qualifications
  • Supporting and encouraging member engagement with community/pro-bono initiatives
  • Advocating membership of the Society
  • Ensuring awareness of and adherence to the PFS/CII Code of Ethics and Conduct
  • Providing social and networking opportunities
  • Building closer relationships and interacting with the CII Local Insurance Institutes

To help support the PFS and become a member of your local committee contact either your regional chairman or PFS Central Office.
