The Insider replaces Sector Connect. But don’t worry. It still contains all the information you need to keep you fully up to speed with the latest news and policy developments from our Sector Forums and Special Interest Groups.We are delighted to introduce our ‘new and improved’ bi-monthly digest, The Insider.
The main change that you will see, is that each edition of The Insider will focus in on a key theme. These themes have been chosen following feedback from our members, and cover the key issues that impact on our sector, including:
Careers and IAG
Communications and Media
Governance and Leadership
For each edition, our valued AELP Patrons will be taking a much more active role in submitting content and leading the agenda. This will mean that members can benefit from their expertise much more readily, as well as gaining access to best-practice advice and thought-leadership pieces.
And, although we will be focusing in on key themes each month, we will still ensure that we’re always responding to what is taking place in the sector. So, if we need to make sure you have the latest update on a ‘Law’ issue, then we’ll do so… even if we’re focusing on ‘Recruitment’ in that particular month.
The excellent advertorial opportunities for our members and partner organisations are unchanged, and if you are looking at a low-cost, high impact way to promote your products, services and events then please get in touch with our team at [email protected] and 0117 986 5389.
The Sector Connect archive will, of course, remain available through our website for your reference.
