Across the UK you'll find a CILIP community on hand to assist you.  Each nation has a unique package of support for members including conferences, events, training, networking, newsletters and Continuing Professional Development opportunities.  CILIP Devolved Nations also advocate for your work and its value, run campaigns and lobby politicians across the UK.

We represent CILIP in Wales, supporting and promoting the profession through cross sector advocacy work, by supporting the professional development of CILIP members in Wales and by growing CILIP membership in Wales.

We work on behalf of members to improve and support library and information services throughout Ireland.  We represent members in Ireland across sectors through our advocacy work and by supporting the professional development of our members.

We support the development of members with networking and learning opportunities through the Branch and Group network and events such as our annual conference, Autumn Gathering and CPD programme. We recognize and reward through our awards and bursaries. We create  a regular newsletter to keep members informed of our advocacy and policy work in devolved matters.
