East Midlands Group

East Midlands Group

The East Midlands Group has been active for many years (some members have been attending since the 1980s!). It covers a wide geographic area from Milton Keynes in the south to Chesterfield in the north, from Hinckley in the west to the North Sea coast in the east. Its major towns are Leicester, Derby, Nottingham, Peterborough and Lincoln.

Meetings are held 5 times a year: late September/early October, late November/early December, February, April and June, which is the AGM. Meetings are held at the offices of members in order to keep costs to a minimum.

The Group wants to reach out to as many companies as it can in the East Midlands and provide informative (and entertaining) meetings with local and national pension experts presenting.


The cost of membership is £25 for 3 years for members of Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association and £40 for 3 years for non-members.
