CPD Points - Why bother?

If CPD points were like Frequent Flyers I sometimes think I would have enough to fly around the world. At the LIV we occasionally hear complaints from members about the necessity of meeting your annual CPD requirement of 10 hours a year. I am committed to the value of Continuing Professional Development and I believe we should look at the requirements as a minimum standard, not the Gold standard.

I come away from every CPD event I attend learning something. This profession is growing and changing all the time and we must keep our skills relevant and up to date to meet its challenges. At the LIV we support members by offering a huge variety of learning opportunities all year round.

This week we staged a new event – the inaugural 2011 LIV Symposium – Towards Business Excellence. It was a successful formula for both members and business partners, attracting over 500 participants.

The two-day program offered an intensive CPD schedule, HR Seminar, Legal Support Staff Conference and a practice support exhibition which hosted 12 exhibitors.

Members seeking last-minute education opportunities in the areas of Family Law, Criminal Law, Wills & Estates, Workplace Relations and compliance were provided with professional updates and access to a range of new information and resources.

During the breaks, delegates were able to visit the exhibition stands of our corporate partners to get advice on new legal products and services. For members who couldn’t make the LIV Symposium and still need to earn CPD points for 2010/11, we encourage you to view the events and activities on our whatsOn calendar.
Did you attend the LIV symposium? What did you think? Do you have any ideas for future CPD events?
