“I feel privileged to be part of the new era IAM since accepting the role of General Manager in January 2016.

We are making some key changes to the service and benefits we offer and the response from current and new members has been hugely positive.  

I am keen to ensure we are an accessible institute with something to offer all our membership so I welcome comments and suggestions on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
