CSP Council identifies and agrees CSP policy and strategy. The work of Council is supported by three standing committees (Industrial Relations, Practice & Development and Communications & Marketing) as well as a number of sub-committees and working groups.
CSP members can access Council minutes and other governance documents.
The Society has three country boards for Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. These each operate as a large committee, drawing their membership from a wide range of interested constituencies in their area.
The prime function of the boards is to act as the first line of contact between Council, its committees and the membership.
English regional networks
There are 10 Regional Networks. These are for all members in England, the Channel Islands and Isle of Man – qualified, associates, students, retired members. Members in each region elect a representative on CSP Council through their regional network.
They also elect a core team who organises the activity of the regional network. The regional networks organise Forums for all members four times a year, as well as other training and study days. Members can also communicate with other members in their regional network through iCSP and receive a regular regional news bulletin.
They also enable members to link up with others, learn about new opportunities, catch up on CPD and support each other.
English Regional Networks form an important part of the democratic structure of the society. They also enable members to link up with others, learn about new opportunities, catch up on CPD and support each other.
