Back to Local Centres


The Southern Local Centre enjoys a vibrant programme of activities that are well attended throughout the year. We have a deep legacy of interesting, thought-provoking and challenging content for our quarterly meetings; and social activities such as our annual dinner. 

As well as providing relevant and valuable technical content, these events provide excellent networking forums – particularly the dinner when the ‘networking’ often lasts into the early hours; sponsorship opportunities; entertainment; and ways in which to raise some money for charity.

New initiatives encourage the regions to invite finance providers with an interest in recovery and insolvency to attend our quarterly meetings. The thinking behind this is to better inform that industry about the work we do and why R3 membership is their best assurance of quality in the practitioners they work with. This is an initiative that we continue to embrace in the Southern Region and provides a further justification (if one were needed) for members to ensure that they come along to our events.

For further information about the region’s events programme, suggesting new ideas for events or topics or if you wish to get involved in any way, please do not hesitate to contact one of our committee.
