Your involvement powers our community

The CILIP community is powered by volunteers. Each groups success is built on the dedication and passion of people like you. If you’d like to be more involved in their work you can join one of the committees and play a part in how they are managed. Each group operates under the CILIP umbrella but is largely independent. To find out more just get in touch to see with your chosen group and see if they have vacancies.
