Last chance to fill in our survey for professional bodies

Last year we launched our triennial Benchmarking Survey for Professional Bodies to identify key trends in the sector.

The survey closes on 31 January 2013 - here are two examples of the types of trends we'll be looking for...

  • Increase towards compulsory CPD
    In 2009, 35% of professional bodies that had an official CPD policy in place used a compulsory one. Will this continue as more professional bodies respond to legislative requirements? Or will we see a decline of the use of sanctions?
  • Decline in volunteering in member networks
    In 2009, 61% of professional bodies said that volunteering in their branches and special interest groups had either stayed the same or declined. Will this trend continue as professionals become more 'time-poor' as a result of recent recessions, or will we see a reversal as professionals try to strengthen their CVs and make more of networking opportunities?
