Mentors Needed!

We urgently need new Mentors to assist applicants for their Professional Review with CIHT.
If you have recently qualified through CIHT and would like to be a Mentor please contact Tony Jones.
We particularly need mentors from a contracting background.  
It need not be time consuming for you but it is bound to be a rewarding experience 

Are you interested in joining our committee?

We are seeking to fill a few vacant committee posts.
If you are interested in joining us we would be delighted to hear from you.
