North London Group

North London Group

Our aim at the North London Group is to provide anyone involved in the pensions industry with a forum to discuss and debate topical pensions issues, to learn about new ideas or initiatives, and to network with other members.  

We are managed by a committee of volunteers and usually hold six business meetings during the year along with a special event such as a workshop. All our evening business meetings take place at the St Albans office of Aon by the station. This venue provides easy access for our members by road or rail and enables us to provide free drinks and nibbles after the business meetings to aid the networking.

Registration for our business meetings begins at 4:30 pm, with the business part of the meetings starting at 5:00 pm and usually concluding by 6:30 pm which allows time for a drink and chat before we close at 7:00 pm.  

Meetings qualify for Continued Professional Development.


Individual and corporate membership is currently free
