We aim to support all our members at every stage of their career and help them reach their full potential. Every part of our broad industry is supported; Managers, students, educators and suppliers.

Established in 1938, we are managed as an educational charity and our resources include publications, management guides and research, covering both our industry and other management disciplines.
