After fighting off tough competition the CIPP and has been shortlisted for the Best Development of an Existing Association Event, Best Advancement of a Cause and Overall Best UK Association for the Association Excellence Awards 2016.

The announcement follows a record year of success for the CIPP and recognises that the CIPP is delivering best practice in all areas of running a successful, responsible and sustainable association – focused on serving members needs and delivering value. It also comes as we celebrate a year since our move into our new head office to help facilitate and support our rapid growth.

Best Development of an Existing Association Event highlights the triumph of the 31st Annual Payroll and Pensions Conference, which was a huge success with delegates and sponsors.

Best Advancement of a Cause recognises the CIPPs work with credit unions which has helped people save and borrow at much fairer rates than alternative high interest lenders. In addition, our work with credit unions is helping the nation’s finances by promoting financial well-being.

The Overall Best UK Association award acknowledges the CIPPs growing membership which now has 11,500 members who process and implement payroll and pensions across the UK. In addition, the award also recognises the CIPPs position as market leader of qualifications in its field and its continued hard work in supporting 944 students to achieve their qualifications goals.
