IBSA Local Branches

In order for its members to get the most out the organisation, the IBSA has a number of Local Branches dedicated to supporting the needs of members by championing the IBSA mission statement in their region.

Each Branch is run by a Committee formed of IBSA members, with responsibility for coordinating Branch activities, approving members and feeding back to the IBSA secretariat.

To find out more about your nearest Branch, please visit the Branch Events page.


The IBSA produces a series of live and on-demand webinars for its members.

Live webinars are available on set dates at set times. Members must register in advance for a live webinar, but the session is then recorded and made available to view after the event. 

Live webinars last no more than an hour, are interactive and provide the opportunity to ask questions and get answers from your webinar host. Live webinars count towards accredited CPD points. On-demand webinars count towards non-accredited CPD points.

For information on upcoming IBSA webinars, please visit the Webinars page.
