Join an IPA Committee

Ever wanted to get involved with the IPA at a strategic or operational level? Now is your chance!

We’re looking for people to join any of our five Committees: Regulation & Conduct; Disciplinary & Appeals; Standards, Ethics & Regulatory Liaison; Finance & Risk; and External Affairs & Member Services.

Joining a Committee is a fantastic way to complement your career, benefit from the prestige of Committee membership, gain deeper insight into insolvency, make new contacts and share ideas. You also have the opportunity to make a mark on the profession by influencing IPA policy and strategy.

We welcome prospective Committee members who are at a variety of stages in their insolvency career. We also welcome lay members from outside insolvency to our Regulation & Conduct and Disciplinary & Appeals Committees.

You don’t necessarily need to have extensive experience, and you don’t have to be from a particular type of firm. Our Committees depend on a wide range of backgrounds. If you’re interested, get in touch with us to find the right opportunity for you.

What current committee members have to say…

“When I was asked if I would like to join the Committee by two members of the Board, I thought that, being a numbers person at heart, it seemed like an ideal role for me … if you are part of a bigger firm, the running of the business is all done for you, so it’s been great to be involved in Committee decisions and the business of the IPA.”

Amanda Wade, Vice Chair, Finance and Risk Committee

“The Committee considers reports from the inspectors on monitoring visits and summaries of complaints investigated by the IPA, then debates them and decides on the appropriate action.” 

“We have some great lay members of the Committee, whose role is to represent the view of the non-specialist, as well as a number of experienced and knowledgeable IPs, which leads to some very useful debate of issues arising from inspections and complaints.”

Pauline Peel, Regulation and Conduct Committee

“I have been involved with the IPA for over 10 years, formerly as a member of the Young Professionals Networking Committee, and for the last 3 years on the External Affairs and Member Services Committee … being involved with the IPA and the Committee is also a great opportunity to regularly meet with others from the profession.”

Joe Colley, Chair, External Affairs and Member Services Committee
