It’s hugely exciting to welcome you to The Institute of Regulation. Without you, the Institute is not a community, cannot pursue its goal of strengthening the profession of regulation, nor will we have the power of our voice to shape the future of regulation. Yet with you, we can do all that and more, and all for the benefit of society and democracy.
We know that we’re a young organisation and that you have taken the plunge to support a fledgling organisation to take its first steps. I and all the directors that have been working to establish the Institute are so grateful. It’s exciting times ahead and I’m delighted to introduce our new blogspace to keep you all up to date on what’s going on. My most important message, however, is that there is still so much to do. If you would like to get involved in establishing the Institute, please drop us a line. We would love to hear from you! Together, we can make this something so valuable for us as regulators, for the future of our sector and for all of society.
So, for those of you who are new, The Institute of Regulation is the UK’s first professional membership body for those working in and interested in regulation. Our aims are to strengthen UK regulatory skills and knowledge and to share good practice, including by building a connected community of regulators, developing training and development in regulatory issues and, in time, leveraging the power of our voice to influence the future of regulation.
The Institute will succeed if we build a strong network of members and add value to their work. As mentioned before, if you can help build the UK’s regulatory profession or are interested in engaging with the Institute in other ways, please get in touch. Please also encourage others to join the Institute of Regulation as it develops, and you begin to see the benefits of our Institute.
