                                                     Epilogue: June 2011




     The CPD Foundation 2010-11 Annual Programme draws to a close this month and the
     lecture series will recommence this coming September.

     Since September 2010 we’ll have held over 100 events, including lectures, networking
     events, computer workshops and a Morning Briefing. We hope all our members have
     enjoyed the programme. We’ve welcomed back past lecturers and introduced some
     new speakers to deliver updates on core topics and explore some alternative subjects.
     We’ve also provided discounted access to APC Courses held by Kingston University.

     As always, we rely on our members to help shape the programme through lecture
     feedback and contact with our office. Thank you to all those members who have
     taken the time to give us their suggestions; all ideas are given careful consideration.
     We are currently planning the schedule for 2010/11 - please let us know, via the web-
     site or by telephoning or emailing the office, if you have any specific topic or speaker
     requests for the new programme.

     With many hundreds of subscribing companies and individual members, representing
     thousands of individual CPD Passport holders of different levels and from different
     disciplines, our Programme is designed to address diverse CPD needs and aspirations.
     We hope that we have succeeded in meeting at least some of your specific
     requirements.

     We are delighted to note that an increasing number of members are also viewing our
     webcasts. Over 35 new lectures have been filmed and added to the site this year. This
     represents a large and growing archive of readily available lectures – whether you
     missed the event itself or wish to revisit a topic and refresh your knowledge, the web-
     casts are easily accessed via our website.

     We will be implementing some essential upgrades to the website over the summer,
     making it easier to use and access features such as the webcasts . Whilst doing so,
     we are taking the opportunity to add some new interactive features, enabling you to
     discuss topics, message colleagues and to connect with co-delegates.

     We look forward to welcoming you back after the summer break. Meanwhile, if you
     have any queries or requests ahead of our new Programme in September, please do
     contact us

     With best wishes,
     The CPD Foundation Team
