IMA members and other free sector advisers can now sign up to a new dedicated area of the IMA website. Members will be able to log in using their existing Members Zone username and password, and non-members can register via the IMA website: www.i-m-a.org.uk/learning-development/adviser-networking-information-sharing
The new web area includes:
A resources directory with a library of information items, including documents relating to Money Advice Groups (MAGs), useful templates, good practice guides and briefings and recordings of livestreamed MAG meetings.
A discussion board for non-technical networking, mentoring and support. We hope this online forum will support advisers, particularly those who work in isolation from other money advisers.
Occasional live IMA webinars, which will be recorded and made available in the resources directory.
As part of the project we will be working in partnership with Shelter, with the following Shelter content in the new web area:
Shelter’s quarterly legal updates
- an archive of Shelter’s monthly e-bulletins and spotlight articles
- technical information guides and briefings on topics of importance to money advisers
- occasional Shelter webinar sessions, informed by consultancy service enquiries and FAQs
The IMA’s Networking and Information Sharing project and Shelter’s Specialist Debt Advice Service are funded by The Money Advice Service.
